June Osborne really would rather be birding than doing just about anything else, and in this charming book of personal reflections, she leads readers through backyards and river bottoms, far and near, savoring the colors, sounds, and playful busy-ness of American Robins, Hooded Orioles, Vermilion Flycatchers, Common Loons, Varied Thrushes, and a hundred other feathered friends. Osborne has introduced thousands of home owners to their common backyard birds. In her book’s opening chapter “Exploring the Backyard,” she features birds people are likely to see around their (mostly) Texas homes. She also introduces some birding tricks of the trade, such as “pishing” and birding by ear. “Travel Is for the Birds,” she shares her birding and nature experiences traveling to such places as Tierra del Fuego, Chile, and Costa Rica, as well as to Arizona and Minnesota in the United States. Her final chapter, “In Love with a River,” chronicles Osborne’s long “love affair” with the Frio River in the Texas Hill Country, where, in April, she is resident birder at Neal’s Lodges, a familiar birding site and stop of the Nature Quest festival held in the Hill Country every spring. Osborne writes with an intimate style that often involves her life journey as well as her bird encounters. While giving us a glimpse of one woman’s spiritual growth through her experiences with birds and nature, Osborne also conveys a wealth of information about birds, both familiar and exotic, and about the enjoyment one can have in getting to know them.

A Life of Ospreys tells the story not only of the osprey, but of the osprey watcher, following the bird's fortunes in Scotland, seeing its numbers rise from that single pair in the 1950s to close to 200 pairs today. It traces the osprey's history in Scotland and the rest of the UK - including the bad old days of egg thieves and the shooting of birds as specimens - to the present day, with satellite radios allowing us to follow and map the every move of the osprey on its migration to Africa and back. With many personal anecdotes and insights, the book covers the ecology and conservation of the osprey from Roy pioneering the building of artificial nests - instrumental in increasing their numbers and range - to starting the first European translocation of chicks from their nests in the Highlands and releasing them at Rutland Water Nature Reserve in the Midlands.
