Oh, my gosh! Jack's Backyard

I was interviewed this morning on WEEU's "Jack's Backyard" program. It airs in Reading, PA. But what a humbling experience! Jack Holcomb had actually read 101 Ways to Help Birds, and apparently genuinely loves it for its breadth and scope as well as the depth of information--he actually read the Table of Contents on air! He said this belongs on the shelf next to his birding "bible," Roger Tory Peterson's field guide. I was genuinely honored.

I've been having a rough summer with more problems than I quite know how to deal with. This was such a refreshing and unexpected accolade that my head is still spinning.
