1 - 2 weeks availability
From robins nesting on window ledges to short-eared owls sailing low over snowy fields, pied-billed grebes diving for fish to catbirds singing on moonlit nights, Black introduces us to the birds of field and forest, prairie and pond. Whether describing red-breasted nuthatches gorging on suet at her feeder after a snowstorm or a flock of American goldfinches all balancing gracefully on ripening oats, ' she reminds us of the natural sights and sounds that we must appreciate and protect. Humorous, personal, engaging, and instructive, her essays provide a readily acessible body of information about Iowa's birdlife for both amateur and professional naturalists of every interest level.
Gladys Black was born within sight of the Red Rock bluffs of central Iowa in 1909. A retired public health nurse, she remains active in both classroom and field. She has been honored by the Iowa Academy of Science, the Iowa Ornithologists' Union, and Simpson College for being "a tireless defender of the environment.""
