Since Tim became a birder in 2002, he primarily stuck to birding in Wisconsin, but given the opportunity in 2021, he began traveling America in search of life birds. By leveraging eBird and other applications, he created custom travel itineraries to efficiently target life birds. Tim will share his experiences planning travel and searching for life birds in North America.
Tim Hahn is an avid birder from Waukesha, WI. He serves on the board of the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology and is lead editor of their quarterly publication The Passenger Pigeon Journal, he serves as vice president for the Benjamin F. Goss Bird Club in Waukesha, and he serves on the eBird review team for Wisconsin. Tim has led bird walks annually for the Horicon Marsh Bird Festival.
