Roger Tory Peterson centennial
To celebrate the centennial, the March/April issue of WildBird featured an article by Kenn Kaufman about Peterson's early years. In the May/June issue, readers can learn details about the creation and publication of the field guide that changed modern birding in 1934.
For the July/August issue, WildBird wants to highlight birders' thoughts about Peterson's effect on this hobby/lifestyle/sport/passion. Please send an e-mail with RTP in the subject line.
