Meet the Staff Who are the people behind FeederWatch? Participants across North America are at the core of Project FeederWatch. But besides the army of people collecting information on birds at their feeders, several people in the United States and Canada are responsible for archiving and analyzing the data and the day-to-day operation of the project. Project FeederWatch is administered in the United States by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and in Canada by Birds Canada. Emma Greig, Project Leader, U.S.: Emma joined Project FeederWatch in 2013. She manages all aspects of the project as well as reviewing flagged records, analyzing data, and writing scientific journal articles. Heidi Faulkner, Lisa Galford, and Anne Marie Johnson, Project Assistants, U.S.: Heidi, Lisa, and Anne Marie help keep FeederWatch running smoothly. They write and edit printed materials, web pages, and eNews messages; answer email, phone calls, and letters; and much more. In addition, Heidi coordinates and maintains our Facebook page, Lisa helps manage our membership lists, and Anne Marie makes sure that research kits, renewal reminders, and other materials are designed, printed, inventoried, and mailed out. Kerrie Wilcox, Project Leader, Canada: Kerrie took over Project FeederWatch at Birds Canada in the fall of 2005. She supervises all aspects of the project in Canada, as well as corresponding with participants, reviewing flagged records, and writing FeederWatch reports. Lynn Batty, Kris Dobney, and Rosie Kirton, Project Assistants, Canada: Lynn, Kris, and Rosie provide participant support, mail out FeederWatch kits, inventory materials, answer calls about membership, and more. Volunteers, U.S.: In addition to relying on work study students and seasonal temporary staff, the successful operation of FeederWatch, particularly the processing of data forms, is absolutely dependent upon the generous help of volunteers who help us process data and correspondence that come through the mail and many other things. We are deeply indebted to the service our volunteers provide. Additional Staff Support The scientific and educational aspects of FeederWatch are overseen in the U.S. by the directors of the center for Engagement in Science and Nature, David Bonter and Mya Thompson. We are grateful to Wesley Hochachka for the tremendous scientific support he provides. The online data entry was created by Birdsource staff, and the web pages and FeederWatch database are managed and maintained by Cornell Lab programmers. The colorful and informative materials you see may have been written by the project staff, but the communications staff at the Cornell Lab often edit and design the materials before they hit the press. They also distribute press releases and help to promote the project. All things must start somewhere, and your participation in FeederWatch usually starts at the membership office. The membership personnel in both countries enter your contact information into the database and ensure that your kits are sent to you after you sign up. FeederWatch is truly a team effort. Many thanks to those who are involved every step of the way!
