Mountain: A Conservation Success Story
IN 1973, HAWK MOUNTAIN'S Jim Brett and Alex Nagy wrote
Feathers in the Wind, a field guide to the Sanctuary
and one of the earliest field guides to migrating birds
of prey. Jim later revised and expanded the popular
guide in both 1986 and 1991.This year Hawk Mountain is proud
to present a long-awaited and completely new publication
that combines Jim Brett's overview of Hawk Mountain cultural
and natural history with new chapters on raptor conservation,
the threats raptors face today, Hawk Mountain's role in
conservation ornithology, and finally, to share our optimism
for raptors, thanks to our conservation science training
program and global reach."This book is the perfect
mix of old and new, and with illustrations by Julie Zickefoose,
incredible photography, text by Keith and Jim, a foreword
by Pete Dunne ... it all combines into a must-have for our
Hawk Mountain supporters," says Sanctuary President
This project is made possible thanks to the generosity
of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural
Resources, Peter Bennett and Jean Nevins, Cameron H. Fowler,
the grandchildren of our founder Rosalie Edge, Deborah Edge,
M.D. and Stephen Edge, M.D., and the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
The attractive 8x8" coffee table trade edition book will
be available by Christmas and is hard cover publication
with a laminate, full-color finish. Also available will
be a special limited-run collector's copy, signed and numbered,
complete with leather-bound cover, satin ribbon bookmark,
gold-gilded edges, and foil-stamped front and spine.
ALL proceeds support Hawk Mountain raptor education programs.
