Mike Hayes

Software Engineer

I support the software and systems behind the eBird website and its many features. I am interested in designing solutions which enable robust and performant applications and that give our users the best experience possible. I feel fortunate to be able to work on an application with such a passionate community and which also enables conservation science and research.

Favorite Bird

My favorite bird is the Common Loon because of its beautiful and sometimes haunting calls which I have had the pleasure of hearing many times.
