Sneed Collard III


Warblers & Woodpeckers: A Father-Son Big Year of Birding. From the killer bee-infested border region of southeast Arizona to the sultry islands of the Galapagos, Warblers & Woodpeckers recounts the quest of a father and his thirteen-year-old son to see as many birds as possible in a single year. With a measured blend of humor, natural history, and adventure, this tale takes readers to great birding hot-spots of America and beyond, both to experience their incredible avian wealth and to experience the focused, often eccentric, world of ornithological travel. Along the way, readers share the ups and downs of the relationship between a father and his teenage son. Sneed B. Collard III is the author of more than seventy-five books, along with countless magazine articles for both children and adults. The Collards live in Missoula, Montana, and you can learn more about Sneed at and his father-son birding at
