Jay McGowan Sound recordist, birder, photographer, videographer

A lifelong birder, I became fascinated with media collection at an early age, adding sound recording to my repertoire when I started working at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Now I have more than 10,000 audio recordings and 100,000 photos archived in the Lab’s Macaulay Library, and I love sharing that passion with others as I teach sound recording workshops and interact with recordists across the world.
