Uncommon Facts About Common Birds
Stan Tekiela, naturalist, wildlife photographer and writer, has traveled the continent studying the natural world of plants and animals. He will raise the question of why some birds flourish while others do not, even as they rely on the same food and habitat. Stan points out that, even with all the science known to mankind, the natural world and survival of species is still a great mystery. The effects of disturbance by development and climate are complex, as is our acceptance of what the natural world was yesterday, what it is today, and what the future might hold.
