Who are the staff and contributors?

We’ve got a top-notch roster. Many of the people who formerly worked on Bird Watcher’s Digest have joined BWD, including Editor Jessica Vaughan, Consulting Editors Dawn Hewitt and Julie Zickefoose, Photography Editor Bruce Wunderlich, and Sarah Clark.

Most of the prior contributing writers will also be on board, along with a few new rising stars. Our contributors include: Bryony Angell, Paul Baicich, Al Batt, Dr. David Bird, Pete Dunne, Katie Fallon, Mark Garland, Alvaro Jaramillo, Tom Johnson, David Lindo, Scott Weidensaul, Bruce Wunderlich, and Julie Zickefoose.

Who are the publishers of BWD?

We’re Mike Sacopulos and Rich Luhr. Mike is a long-time birder and attorney, and Rich is an experienced niche magazine publisher. We believed that Bird Watcher’s Digest was too good to let fail, so we joined with several of the former employees and formed a new company to publish BWD.
