Ed Reilly is a Senior Field Application Engineer in the GPS business working for u-blox America Inc. for the past 10 years. He grew up in the Atlantic flyway and developed an interest in birds while exploring New York City's Central Park, Jamaica Bay and Prospect Park. Since moving to Minneapolis in 2007, Ed has recorded over 70 bird species in his urban backyard alone. Ed volunteers locally as an eastern bluebird monitor, recording data on 16 nest boxes. During the summer, Ed can be found on his sailboat enjoying the natural beauty – and eagles – of Lake Pepin.
