The Reading Corner
« 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

I am so glad someone has started this page & will be checking back to see the titles so I can see about borrowing some of these books from the library to read. Thank you so much.

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/

Thanks for that article, yonder!  Read it twice it was so nice :)
Should be mandatory reading for all eagleholics to help prevent the NWZ.
Use the talents you possess: for the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except the best.

The Right Way to Remember Rachel Carson

Rachel Carson: Silent Spring & Other Writings on the Environment (The Library of America) Hardcover - March 27, 2018 (available at Amazon)




Carson's domestic world may have shaped her understanding of the natural one; both, she learned, were complex and sometimes fragile ecosystems.

New Birds of Nunavut book is a tell-all on the territory's birds

http://nunatsiaq.com/stories/article/65674new_birds_of_nunavut_book_is_a_tell-all_about_territorys_birds/


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.
