A wonderful book, nicely researched by Bill Rapai (who I met at a local Audubon meeting after buying his book). And even more special, I was finally able to see two Kirtland's Warblers on their nesting grounds near Grayling, Michigan, just last week. Having read this book made my trip to see the rare birds even more special.
