Paul Lehman is currently the Chair of the California Bird Records Committee and was the special editor for WFO to the CBRC's opus "Rare Birds of California", edited by Robb Hamilton et al. A noted field ornithologist who began birding in his home state of New York at the age of nine, Paul has a long east-west (New York to Santa Barbara, back to Cape May, New Jersey, then back to California) and north-south (Gambell, Alaska to his current home in San Diego) migratory history of his own. Paul's accomplishments are inspiring. An expert in weather, migration, distribution, geography, and mapping, Paul's work can be found in The Sibley Field Guides to Birds of Eastern and Western North America, Roger Tory Peterson's Field Guide to Birds of North America, The National Wildlife Federation Field Guide to Birds of North America, and the National Geographic Society's Field Guide to the Birds of North America, to name a few. A former lecturer at the University of California Santa Barbara in the geography and environmental studies departments, Paul also served as the Editor of ABA's "Birding" magazine for nearly a decade. Paul is currently an associate editor for "North American Birds" and "Western Birds" and a senior tour leader for Wings and is currently updating the maps and entire text for the Peterson Western Field Guide.
