E. O. Wilson Praises Birders

Harvard professor E. O. Wilson offers these kind words about birders in his recent book, The Creation:
It is among birders, all of them naturalists and adventurers, that the child can find role models. There are a few eccentric loners in their ranks, but also physicians, ministers, plumbers, business executives, military officers, engineers, and in fact members of virtually every trade and profession. They are united in a common focus. At least while in the field, they are among the most congenial and enthusiastic people I have ever known [emphasis added].
I thank the O’Connell’s at "Eat more cookies" for bringing this quote to my attention here.
