Dawn Hewitt is the editor of Bird Watcher’s Digest and Watching Backyard Birds. Dawn was bitten by the birding bug in 1979 during a college ornithology class—a life-changing experience. While working as a copy editor and reporter for The Herald Times newspaper in Bloomington, Indiana, she was also the newspaper’s weekly birding columnist and a past president of Sassafras Audubon Society. She has been to all 50 states, and birded in most of them. Her life list is somewhere around 1,200, including birds in Colombia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Belize, Mexico, Canada, England, Scotland, and Thailand.
