In 2010 I wrote a book called "Oh No, Gertrude!" accompanied by Rodney Cammauf's excellent photographs. It is about a mama bear named Gertrude and her 3 bear cubs to help keep bears safe. It is being carried by a number of national parks and I have sold over 2,000 copies. Please visit the "Oh No, Gertrude!" website: www.oh-no-gertrude.com
I am heading off now to do a book reading for the book at a Kindergarten Class in Orange, Virginia. Maybe I'll see some birds along the way!
That's about it for now.
Post #2 for today
In case anyone's interested, my book reading to the kindergarten class went great. I was hoping to see some birds along the way and I did not fail to do that. I found lots of hawks, mostly red-tails but a couple of kestrels and a Red-shouldered Hawk or two. I also found 2 Mute Swans, they were at a pond at a vineyard so they were most likely domesticated but still an interesting find.
To start out February, I'll go birding for several hours tomorrow. I'll post if I find anything interesting.
