Tim Lenz will be presenting “Birding Tech Evolution: eBird’s Impact and Beyond”


Tim Lenz, software developer, lifelong birder, and a recent Co-Founder of BirdingApp, will be sharing a unique perspective on the timeline and development of some of the most popular and lesser-known eBird features. He will explore the impetus behind these features, as well as their impact on conservation and the birding community. His presentation will conclude with an introduction to BirdingApp, a new mobile app and social platform made to fit the unique needs of birders in the field.
 
Here is Tim’s bio:

Tim Lenz, software developer and lifelong birder, is a recent Co-Founder of BirdingApp. He served as a key developer on the eBird project for 17 years at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. During that time, he was also a member of the famed Team Sapsucker, including a record-breaking ABA big day in Texas in 2013 with 294 species. He has birded extensively throughout North and Central America, Colombia, and Australia. Tim relocated to Tennessee this past May, captivated by the people, the weather, and the abundant birding opportunities. Originally from Reno, Nevada, Tim earned his B.S. and M.Eng. in Computer Science from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.

Hope to see you at the meeting!!
