Kenn Kaufman, originator of the Kaufman Field Guide series, is well-known by birders and naturalists across the country. Many of us remember his first book, Kingbird Highway, a wonderful tale of his long hitch-hiking search for birds as a teenager. He and his wife Kimberly, executive director of Ohio’s Black Swamp Bird Observatory, have just released a new book, Kaufman Field Guide to Nature of New England which has an official publication date next week. In researching the book, they learned that New England offers astonishing surprises around every corner when they set out to research their new guide to New England natural history.
They will be doing a book tour of New England starting the 16th and visiting Bear Bond Books in Montpelier on October 30th. The event starts at 7:00 PM and will likely be crowded so get there early. You can pre-order the book now.
They will be leading a bird walk earlier that day at the North Branch Nature Center, a co-sponsor of their visit. Space will be limited so stayed tuned for details.
This will be a great chance for Vermont birders to welcome Ken and Kim to Vermont.
