Open season

Want to ask a question about WildBird, its editor or magazine publishing? Pose it in the comments. I'll answer just about any question this week, while on deadline for the May/June issue.

Fire away. For your efforts, you might win Kaufman Field Guide to the Insects of North America. Don't be shy. You know you want to read all about damselflies, walkingsticks, antlions and skippers.

I'd like to know what in your background brought you to be the editor of Wildbird? Were you in journalism before becoming a birder?

Hi Lynne!

Si, I earned a journalism degree and began working at a magazine publishing firm in 1995. It produces multiple magazines, so I hopscotched a little before joining WildBird in 1998. This topic and community really grew on me, and I became editor in 2002.

Did I know much about birds and birding before 1998? Very little. This gig has been -- and continues to be -- truly educational!

Thanks for the question, Lynne.
