I still have not received a copy of your book.
I was away last week - up in New Brunswick off Grand Manan Island at Bowdoin
Scientific Station on Kent Island. Worked with scientist studying Leach's
Storm Petrel. Also added Black-legged Kittiwake to my life list and had good
opportunities during the ferry rides to study shearwaters.
We should get you to SVAS to talk about your book, etc.

> the book is now available or will be soon at most bookstores, nature shops

> I'll be doing quite a few talks/slide shows/book signings at book stores
> and for Audubon groups in coming months. I'll probably list those events

> Now, in more important news, I've just returned from a five-day

> Leamington. At the summit was a nice flock of four or five Boreal
> Chickadees. They behaved nothing like the shy Boreal Chickadees at Moose
> Bog. They readily came in to spishing and perched for nice long looks on
> exposed perches -- kind of like the behavior of their kin in the White
> Mountains. Among them was a single Cape May Warbler -- probably an adult
> female or a first-fall male. I didn't really notice many migratory flocks
> of warblers yet, which was a bit surprising.
> Off to see shorebirds at Plum Island.
