“Rainbows, Bluebirds and Buffleheads” at the Ohio County Public Library, Wheeling WV

This program is free and open to the public.   December 6, 12 – 1 pm

For years people have told me they often come to my programs just to hear my stories.  Many said, “You should write down your stories!  You should write a book!”   So, I did!

This  book is a collection of my favorite bird-related stories and describes my progression from a young boy fascinated by the rainbows in starling and pigeon feathers, to becoming an expert in bird identification, natural history, having a Master Personal Federal Bird Banding Permit for over 40 years and studying eastern screech-owls for 28 years.  Most of the stories describe experiences which took place in West Virginia…many of those in Ohio County.

At Ohio County Public Library’s “Lunch With Books”, I will be speaking about my new book and telling stories from it.

Rainbows, Bluebirds and Buffleheads will be available for purchase at the program.
