Well – as long as you do not ask for pay, that is! I am looking for additional writers who are interested in contributing posts covering our usual range of topics – birds, birding trips, reviews of bird books, bird photography, and so on.

While ideally, you would be willing to write regularly (i.e., weekly or biweekly), I will also be happy to accept one-off guest posts. So being afraid of commitment is not an excuse.

I am also looking for somebody who knows more about social media than me (not a high bar really) – somebody who can help me promote the site to people who never stood around a fax machine in awe.

If you are interested, please contact me at kai.pflug (at) gmail.com

Looking forward to hearing from you!

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.
