Moonbird: A Year on the Wind with the Great Survivor B95 by Phillip Hoose
Thank you Mr. Hoose for introducing me to this delightful 4 ounce wonder of nature.  I could not stop marveling at this little bird as I learned fact after fact about the rufa red knot.  Discovering that B95 has earned his nickname, "Moonbird," because he has logged enough flight miles to literally fly to the moon was just the first of many fascinating bits of information contained inside this gem of a book.  I'm so glad your book is getting attention and thrilled that maybe, just maybe, it will help inspire people to save shore birds before it's too late.

Check out these scientists and volunteers as they gather information about birds like B95.
