Get Ready For A Year Of Peterson

Word on the street is that this August is Roger Tory Peterson's 100th birthday and the following month is Bird Watcher's Digest's 30th anniversary. Peterson not only wrote for BWD for 12 years but was a good friend of the Thompson family who own the publication. The Thompsons are planning a program in honor of his life and his contribution to birding that could last a full year.

Also in honor of Peterson, Houghton Mifflin, his publisher, will introduce a new field guide in large size, combining both eastern and western birds.
