Gary Chapin is the Secretary of the New York State Avian Records Committee (NYSARC). Gary took over the role from Jeanne Skelly, who served NYSARC with distinction for more than a decade. Fortunately, Jeanne is still affiliated with the Committee as she continues to curate and organize the extensive NYSARC archive.
Gary is a life-long resident of Upstate New York and has birded intensively in the state since 1991. A graduate of the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse University and Rochester Institute of Technology, he works as an engineer for Xerox. He regularly travels in search of birds, visiting 16 countries to date. We welcome his knowledge, enthusiasm and organizational skills. You can reach Gary via the NYSARC email address:
