Marsha C. Salett

After six years as a copyeditor, Melinda S. LaBranche has retired from Bird Observer. Mindy worked at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology before she moved back to southeastern Massachusetts, where she taught biology at several local colleges. Her combination of experience, sharp eyes, and attention to detail served Bird Observer well. Mindy also wrote about “Atlantic Coastal Pine Barrens: a Globally Rare Habitat in Southeastern Massachusetts” (Bird Observer August 2016, Volume 44, Number 4) and “Evening Grosbeaks: Winter Jewels of My Childhood” (Bird Observer October 2019 Volume 47, Number 5). Thank you, Mindy, for the professionalism and expertise you brought to the journal.
