The Delightful Horror of Family Birding
ELI J. KNAPP, Ph.D., is professor of intercultural studies and biology at Houghton College and director of the Houghton in Tanzania program. Knapp is a regular contributor to Birdwatcher’s Digest, New York State Conservationist, and other publications. An avid birdwatcher, hiker, and kayaker, he lives in Fillmore, New York, with his wife and children.
In his upcoming book, The Delightful Horror of Family Birding: And Other Essays about Sharing Nature with the Next Generation, Eli Knapp takes readers from a leaky dugout canoe in Tanzania and the mating grounds of Ecuador’s cock-of-the-rock to a juniper titmouse’s perch at the Grand Canyon and the migration of hooded mergansers in a New York swamp, exploring life’s deepest questions all along the way.In this collection of essays, Knapp intentionally flies away from the flock, reveling in insights gleaned from birds, his students, and the wide-eyed wonder his children experience.
