Jim Williams has been watching birds and writing about their antics since before "Gilligan's Island" went into reruns. Join him for his unique insights, his everyday adventures and an open conversation about the birds in your back yard and beyond.
How unlikely – a romantic book illustrating and discussing North American bird nests and eggs. The book was born in 1876 when Genevieve Jones was forbidden from marrying the man she loved. She began mending her a broken heart with nest and egg drawings styled after the monumental work of John James Audubon. It was a project soon interrupted by her death, finished by family and friends. Ninety copies were printed, 45 originals remain known. Now, “America’s Other Audubon” published by Princeton Architectural Press, restores for wide enjoyment this lovely work. With the story told in new text by Joy M. Kiser, this coffee-table-sized work (11x13 inches) indeed does for nests and eggs what Audubon did for the birds themselves. Hardcover, $45.
