If you need one last minute stocking stuffer or a literary treat for yourself that will help you to stop for a few minutes and take time out from the rush to enjoy the natural world, we heartily recommend Mike Lubow’s wonderful new volume, “Wild Notes”, published by Birdwatcher Books.

This is an easy book to read when you are pressed for time, because each entry describes one of Lubow’s encounters with a winged creature in nature, and is only a page long. But what a page, filled with emotion, passion, perceptions and observations that connect birds and their activities in nature with man and the challenges of daily living.
