5 Questions Means 5 Books to Give Away!

by Ron Hogan

grailbird.jpgLast Friday, on my way out the door, I added an interview with Tim Gallagher, the ornithologist who confirmed the survival of the ivory-billed woodpecker, to the "5 Questions With..." section. I didn't mention it then because I knew you were all eager to start your weekends, but there's a special element to this piece I think you'll like: The questions were supplied by five other birding authors.

If you want to learn more about the book, I heard Gallagher speak recently, and though Alan Burdick showed little enthusiasm in last weekend's NYTBR, David Allen Sibley "couldn't wait" to read it, while Judith Toups calls it "a lesson for our times."
