Rare Bird

While on the road from Martinsburg, West Virginia, to Columbia, Maryland, on Monday, I chanced to tune in to the Diane Rehm show and was treated to a wonderful interview with nature writer Maria Mudd Ruth, who talked at length about her new book, Rare bird: pursuing the mystery of the Marbled Murrelet. In speaking of the many people she met and interviewed in researching the book, Ms. Ruth specifically mentions the Pacific Seabird Group and describes the biologists and other people involved in the conservation of this species as the “hardest-working, dedicated, passionate people I’ve ever met.” Thanks to the marvels of modern technology, you can hear the full interview online. In a Web site dedicated to promoting the book, Ms. Ruth has made available much interesting information about the Marbled Murrelet.
