Bird Observer is a New England-based bimonthly journal created by birders for birders. It is a private nonprofit corporation supported by subscribers and produced entirely by an all-volunteer staff. If you are interested in being part of the future of New England's birding journal, let us know. Available volunteer positions are:
Digital Production Manager: Assist with publishing the online edition of the bi-monthly Journal, production of digital artwork and pdf publications, and maintenance of various online services. Technically adept, detail-minded individuals are welcome. A creative flair for problem solving and persistence against unforeseen obstacles would be a bonus.
Bird Sightings Compiler for Worcester County: Our long-running Bird Sightings column relies on data from compilers around the state. The compiler for Worcester County would be responsible for sending in reports every two months of species seen in that county for the previous two months. Species are reported in a spreadsheet template and include sightings that are representative of high counts, early/late dates, and anything rare or unusual. The compiler should be familiar with the birds (and birders) of Worcester County, be comfortable with using a spreadsheet, and be able to use eBird.org to query sightings.
