For anyone with even a passing interest in bird watching (the feathered kind, that is), one is likely to have used a copy of A Field Guide to Birds of North America- by Roger Tory Peterson. His succinct descriptions and clear illustrations truly revolutionized bird identification and made this pleasant and benign sport accessible to multitudes of would-be ornithologists — myself included.
We visited the Institute which houses many of his original drawings & sketches as well as many artworks of nature and ecology. The displays were fascinating and the building was fabulous. While they did not want visitors taking pictures inside, I grabbed one of the main library area. Gorgeous natural wood throughout.
