Book Review, “Peregrine Quest: From a Naturalist’s Field Sketchbook” (Winter 2009, Living Bird Magazine)

Living Bird Magazine – Clayton White has devoted his life’s work to the pigeon’s nemesis, the Peregrine Falcon. In Peregrine Quest, he narrates the life and also tells us more about the species than any recent book. Peregrine Quest ranges in time from the 1960s to the present, and geographically from the Lower 48 states to the Arctic, Central Asia, South America, Australia, and the South Seas. It is a fascinating mixture of autobiography, anecdote, observation, and up-to-date scientific information. I have often said of myself that birds of prey have led me to places and people I would otherwise not have known; the peregrine has done the same for Clayton White. As he says, “For me, devotion to the study of a species of bird and the involvement of students and family in that study, and the love of it, has made my life meaningful.”
