Project Staff

Logan Parker is an ecologist and the founder of the Maine Nightjar Monitoring Project. In 2017, Logan initiated this grassroots, citizen-science driven effort when he first learned of declining nightjar populations in New England. He graduated from Unity College with a Masters in Sustainable Natural Resource Management focused on bird monitoring and conservation. In 2019, Logan founded the North American Nightjar Working Group to form partnerships with other nightjar monitoring efforts throughout the continent. He is currently supporting the Maine Bird Atlas (2018 - 2022) by coordinating and participating the project's special species projects. 

When not out looking for nightjars, Logan enjoys birding, wildlife photography, writing, gardening, reading, and working with his wife, Hallee, on their off-grid home in the woods of Waldo County, Maine.
