Spontaneous Saddleback Sonnet Sessions

To commemorate the Tieke’s imminent glorious victory in Bird of the Year 2012, I have self-published a book celebrating the Saddleback.

Read it. It’s free. If you like it then please donate. I will give 50% of all koha to Forest and Bird and, if I y’all keep donating past my print run costs, everything else will go to them. I have a limited number of print copies, if you want one please email Me .

There will be more this year. Promise.
