After meeting and chattting with Kenn Kaufman at the Rio Grands Valley Birding Festival in Texas last fall, I feel like I actually know him. I don’t of course. A short, one-time discussion is not enough to be able to say “Yeah, I know him.” But it sure clarifies an image and really puts a face to the name. His book, KINGBIRD HIGHWAY, is written in a style that makes it extremely easy to read and provides an honest look at the man and a period in his life. I highly reccommend this book to anyone who has even a general interest in birds and/or birding.
