Title: The Reading Corner
Post by: oregonian1944 on May 23, 2017, 08:35:15 PM
It was requested tonight in chat that we post the list of recommended books for studying and learning more about the Bald Eagle.  This list is by no means a complete list, but it's certainly a good start for those who want to learn more. The list is in no particular order.

A Season with Eagles by Dr. Scott Nielsen
The Bald Eagle by Mark Stalmaster
The Bald Eagle - Haunts and Habits of a Wilderness Monarch by Jon Gerrard and Gary Bortolotti
Understanding the Bird of Prey by Nick Fox
Raptors: The Birds of Prey by Scott Weidensaul
Just Eagles by Alan Hutchinson

Some of the best reading you can find is right within the Raptor Resource Project.  The RRP Blog is authored by Amy Reis who is a staff member at RRP and her articles are full of information about not only the Decorah eagles but other raptors as well.  Amy is very knowledgeable about bald eagles (as well as other raptors) and you will find her articles very informative and fun to read.

You will find the RRP Blog here:   https://raptorresource.blogspot.com/

Birds of Nunavut is divided into two volumes. One deals with a kind of birds called nonpasserines that don't perch, like ducks, geese, swans and falcons. The other volume deals with a kind that's less numerous in Nunavut, called passerines, which perch, such as tyrant flycatchers and cardinals.

A Season on the Wind by Kenn Kaufman is a well-written, engrossing narrative that follows the incredible phenomenon of bird migration.   Kaufman?s main focus is on spring migration but fall migration, equally important, is covered, too. 
   His observations center around the birds passing through his home territory along the southwest shoreline of  Lake Erie, east of Toledo, Ohio. This is an area world famous as a birding "hotspot" with spring migrants flying from as far as the southern tip of South America then spreading north to the upper reaches of Canada and Alaska after a "refueling" stopover at Lake Erie.
   Kaufman describes how and why these tiny creatures are able to make such lengthy journeys not once, but twice, every year.  He also discusses navigation and how birds determine routes for the perilous journeys.
   Chapters in the book also address bird conservation issues such as climate change, and the unintended consequences of alternative energy sources, specifically wind farms. There is also a nice chapter on bald eagles.
   Kaufmann is a well-known, highly respected birding expert, conservationist, artist and author of numerous books and field guides. This is not a dry reference book. He writes with obvious love and fascination for his topic that has not diminished since he took up birding in his youth.
   Come this spring you may look up into the night sky with a renewed sense of awe and a tip of the hat to Kenn Kaufman and all who advocate for our winged migrants.

Additional reading: Kingbird Highway by Kenn Kaufman. His memoir of dropping
out of high school at age 16 to travel around the country in pursuit of birds.

Full disclosure: I?ve had the good fortune to hear Ken speak at a couple of birding events, and also participated in a birding workshop he led years ago when he lived
in Arizona.  A genuinely nice guy!
