Birds In the Hand
Dave has spent his career in businesses devoted to improving the environment. His most fun project was helping to found the Reva Electric Car Company in India, which is now among the largest electric vehicle manufacturers in the world. Dave believes that eBird is critical to capturing biodiversity data now for driving good conservation decisions over the next decades, and is devoted to getting as much high-quality data into eBird from as many birders as possible. Dave is the leader of our flock, an enthusiastic birder, and a bit obsessive about product quality and data integrity.
JP (Pete) Myers
One our original founders, Pete not only has a PhD in Ornithology, he is an accomplished biologist, environmental scientist, author and photographer. Equally impressive, Pete is the voice and production expertise behind our videos. When not in the studio, Pete is usually seen with his binos and camera pointed to the trees or across a lake near his home, or half way around the world. Pete has held posts as Senior Vice President for Science at the National Audubon Society, NYC and research scientist at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia. He has dedicated his life to a love of nature and the environment and continues to dedicate himself to environmental threats to children's health, and coauthored "Our Stolen Future", a book which explores the scientific basis of concern for how contamination threatens fetal development.
"Look closely at what is in your back yard and you will gain a sense of the power of evolution and the beauty of nature."
You may recognize George's name from our support emails. George migrated away from corporate IT jobs to follow his passion for nature and tax write-offs for high tech toys. Today George leads our Help Desk and is happy to answer questions and provide application support for the entire app family. In addition to our feathered friends George is a bit goofy about elephants and just about any of the smaller critters that most sensible people shy away from.
BirdsEye is Powered by eBird
eBird at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology pulls in several million bird observations each month. These observations are added by thousands of birders and reviewed by local birding experts – making BirdsEye the most accurate, comprehensive bird location mobile application.
