My First Book
The cover photograph was taken in an apple orchard. Two tree swallows arguing over the ownership of a favored perch made for an engaging image that routinely makes people smile. The moment I took the photograph I knew it would end up on the cover of something.
This collection of 28 essays drew heavily from my weekly newspaper column. Whether you're a layperson or an experienced naturalist, I think you'll find it to be an engaging and accessible combination of science and humor that will entertain and inspire you to explore nature and the environment.

The book contains 8 photographs and 5 of my own illustrations. If you would like more information on the book's contents and how to order your own copy, please click the following links.
