William Lynch, author of In Praise of Wood Ducks. After an amazing poll in which 820 votes were cast, William came away with a compelling majority. Still, I’m happy to say that we were all winners this time. Congratulations to William as well as the other five outstanding authors for your terrific tributes to beloved birds! (FYI – today is the last day to submit gift ideas for the last copy of BIRD.)
