Brian's Sketch in West

I had Buteo Books mail a copy of Birds of Prey of the West to author Brian Wheeler and look what he sketched on the title page! Aplomado? Yep! My favorite title of the last many years.

That View That Morning

Nico's Perch, Our Living Room

Sometimes my view of the eagle nest across the river is blocked by wildlife.

New Books!

These are the finest books I have seen in many years, and Brian Wheeler has taken field guides for raptorphiles to a different realm. I made this flier and suggest that you purchase copies at Buteo Books I have never seen such detail, new science, and passion in any titles. A must-have and WOW! Thanks Brian.

Photography Show

Cool, twenty-five mostly new photos at Blacksmith Brewing, downtown Stevensville and thanks so much to Cathy and Jimmy Scholtens for helping me install. And Sonora the Aplomado in the first photo, helping me box 'em up, standing on the bookshelf door.
