I'm waiting for the Texas A&M University Press folks to do the copy-editing on my manuscript for my book on ABA big year of birding (running title: Passionate Birder: One Woman's Big Year). While I'm waiting, I'm doing research to see whether I might propose to do another book for "normal" people (not fanatic birders) on U.S. birds that are in decline/in danger because of their low numbers, habitat problems, etc. (e.g., Whooping Crane, Kirtland's Warbler, Lesser Prairie-Chicken). The research is very interesting, whether or not any real book comes out of it. I'd want the book to be people-friendly and not intimidating to non-birders, and hopefully lure them into picking it up and reading it.
