Attending Alaska's Birds: A Wildlife Pilot's Story
This is an exciting cornucopia of solid and fascinating biological and historical facts. The author's career as a scientist has been dedicated his life to the well-being of Alaska's wildlife, especially its birds. His studies have helped to determine that Alaska is home, at least during part of each year, to 100 million seabirds, 70 million shorebirds, and 12 million waterfowl. Although he didn't count each bird, he certainly counted his share in something like 6,000 hours of peering at them out of low flying airplanes, most of which he personally piloted.
