Springing Forward

Just a reminder that there is a Birds and Beers next Monday, March 18, 2013 at The Black Forest Inn in Minneapolis. Anybody is welcome, if you are interested in birds--it's for you! Have a birding project, tour or book you want to promote? Bring it! I'll be bringing a box of birding stuff--review items, birding samples from various companies--you may go come with a prize! I'll also be bringing along my first copy of this:


I got my very fist copy of my book 1001 Secrets Every Birder Should Know (coming out May 7, 2013)! Spring is always a busy with birds and bird festivals, but I also have this to contend with (in a fun way).  It will come out right while I'm in the middle of The Biggest Week in Birding which is already an action packed week for me. Looks like I'll be doing a couple of Digiscoping with an iPhone workshops as well as a Birds and Beers and hopefully...a book signing for my new book!

This book is not going to change the world, but my goal is that someone who is aware of birds may pick up a few fun tidbits, maybe some interesting dinner party conversation or inspiration and take their birding to the next level. Hopefully, I won't get disbarred from the birding world for revealing all of the secrets!

The fun thing is to flip through the book and see photos I took and remember where I was and who I was with when that photo was taken.  It's kind of an odd little birding scrapbook of my life. I hope people enjoy it and that it doesn't irritate people too much.
