Birds and Birdwatchers by Gerry Rising

I am pleased to see that Gerry Rising has a new book out.

For 25 years Gerry wrote a weekly column for the Buffalo News called Nature Watch. This book contains 100 of those essays. Some of them are about individual bird species. I like to think I have some knowledge of birds but I learned something new and interesting about each of the species he has written about. Many of the most fascinating concern species which are now extinct.

Other essays touch on some of the interesting people who have been passionate about birds. This includes well known personalities like Roger Tory Peterson and some less well known like Alan Klonick who apparently jumped into the frigid Genesee River to help further bird knowledge. But I’ll let Gerry tell that story.

The book is available in paperback from Amazon. You can find it here:

Birds and Birdwatchers

I highly recommend it!!

Mesa Arch

Located in Canyonlands National Park, Mesa Arch is one of the great iconic scenes from the southwest. At sunrise the light shines on the underside of the arch creating a warm glow in the red rock. In the distance can be seen a framed view of Canyonlands.

Cody Rapids: Ontario Waterfalls

This is really a rapids rather than a waterfall but is part of a series of chutes, falls and rapids on the Magnetawan River. If you are in the area, it is worth stopping for a look.

Rating:

Warning: It can be dangerous to view and photograph waterfalls. The footing can be wet and slippery, and an accidental fall can result in serious injury or death. Note also that many sections of waterfalls are on private property. Please respect these rights.
