 Grouse & Woodcock - The Birds Of My Life by Timothy C. Flanigan

The Pennsylvania State Bird and the American Woodcock have long held a fascination for me. I have pursued these wonderful examples of wildness for most of my life, either behind a fine bird dog or more often with a camera. Decades of research and personal observation inspires me to share my love for these birds through photography and natural history education, with any audience that will listen. I am pleased to announce the publication of my first book,

A few of the reviews: 

- "The reader doesn't have to have ever heard of a Grouse or Woodcock to lose themselves in the writing and excellent photographs in this book. The writer is extremely knowledgeable of his subjects, but he has a way of including interesting facts and humorous incidents, which encourage the reader to keep turning the pages." - "Writing is clear and insightful, and the depth of knowledge and passion the author has for these birds, and willingness and excitement to share that with the reader, really shines through and makes for an enjoyable read." - "This is a valuable, informative hunters' guide and manual for those seeking to bag the game or its image." - "Not only hunters, but nature photographers and bird lovers, will appreciate the knowledge of the habitats presented of these two birds. To capture these elusive birds on film was another feat. Reproduction of the photos was excellent." - "The star of this book is definitely the photos of Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock. I have never previously seen better quality photos taken especially of the Woodcock." - "Abslutely stunning photography throughout." -  "Fascinating narrative and visual experience about the Grouse and Woodcock." - "Interesting, unique and knowledgeable, outstanding book about the grouse and woodcock."  - "Two exceptionally good sections: 1) Tips for Successful Wildlife Photography and 2) Fascinating Facts about the Ruffed Grouse."

I encourage you to support, along with me, the Ruffed Grouse Society, an organization dedicated to the support of national scientific conservation and management efforts to ensure the future of the Ruffed Grouse and American Woodcock species. Conservation and creating healthy forest habitat for ruffed grouse, American woodcock and other wildlife is the main mission of the RGS. Hunters were the first conservationists and the RGS and its members continue that great tradition.

"No other wildlife conservation organization is dedicated to protecting, restoring and creating early successional forests  that provide habitat for ruffed grouse, woodcock and songbirds." ~ The Ruffed Grouse Society
