You can read Ted's write-up of the whole saga here. It's a very flattering description of me, so I urge you to read it. ;)

I'm joining Birding magazine!
Last November, I got the first email inviting me to do some copy-editing for the American Birding Association's Birder's Guide. Since then, I've edited a number of issues for Birder's Guide as an Assistant Copy Editor and Birding as a Copy Editor. This September, I got a very exciting email from Ted Floyd, the Editor of Birding. Their Associate Editor, Noah Strycker, is taking next year off for a massive global Big Year. His incredible goal is 5,000 species. This is the kind of amazing adventure that birders across the world dream of. And Noah is really going for it! In the meantime, he has to put aside his Associate Editor position. So Ted asked if I might be interested in standing in for him. You bet I'm interested! So here's my good news... I'm very excited to join Birding as their Associate Editor for 2015. Noah will be off adventuring the world... I'll be adventuring right here at home into the world of Birding. I'm so honored that the American Birding Association considers me a good choice for the role. And I'll give it 100% of my energy and effort! Wish me luck!
