Richard Mooney’s Field Notes, A Birder’s Journey to the Pacific Northwest, is an inspiring memoir and fascinating record of a birder’s life and work in the region. It follows his journey from an inquisitive youngster into a life-long pursuit for the knowledge of birds. His achievements in worldwide banding and conservation are now a testimony to the integrity of his work and passion for ornithology.
Richard has faithfully and thoroughly documented his avian adventures with detailed species lists and photographs, which makes Field Notes a valuable reference for birders anywhere.
Anyone with an interest in wildlife will know the joy in “spotting a lifer” (seeing a new species for the first time in your life, that is) and will share the same excitement when reading Field Notes, A Birder’s Journey to the Pacific Northwest.
