Neither of these authors are on our library catalogue so will be going down there to see if they can find them for me.

Both books are available through the Winnipeg Public Library. The Kaufmann one has both a 1997 version and a 2006 version which seems to be the same book with a new subtitle and "afterword". Both about quest to see most different birds in one year and both look really interesting.

Kinderchick's Suggestions

While travelling to the west coast earlier this summer, I came across a book stand in an Abbotsford, B.C. restaurant with a lovely little soft covered book entitled "The Eagles of Hornby Island: My Tree-Top Neighbours" by Douglas Carrick. After 15 years of observing eagles from the ground in their backyard on Hornby Island, Douglas, along with his wife, Sheila, have hosted an Eagle Cam since September 2004. I know that many of us have been watching Phoenix's antics this past Spring and were saddened to hear of her death in mid July. This little book was published in 2008, before Phoenix's time, but gives lots of interesting anecdotal information about eagles as well as other birds nesting on Hornby Island. I found it to be an easy and enjoyable read and if anyone is interested in ordering it, the following link will lead you to it as well as many other interesting birding and wildlife books...
