Whenever we feel 10,000 Birds could have more writers, we ask an online AI art creation site for a suitable illustration. The result is always ugly (see example above) and the opposite of what we seek: personal experiences and thoughts related to birds and birding, not some ChatGPT-written blurb. Call it misleading advertising.

If neither that nor that we do not pay anything does not put you off, please get in touch. While writers from all locations are welcome, we are particularly looking for writers from North America, as we have many readers there yet few writers. And while we have no idea about the gender of our readers, we would like to have more female writers as well.

Kai Pflug has been living in Shanghai for 20 years. He only became interested in birds in China – so he is much more familiar with birds in China than with those in Germany. While he will only ever be an average birder, he aims to be a good bird photographer and has created a website with bird photos as proof. He hopes not too many clients of his consulting company read this blog, as they will doubt his dedication to providing consulting services related to China`s chemical industry. Whenever he wants to shock other birders, he tells them his (indoor) cats can distinguish several warblers by taste.
