Awesome Osprey: Fishing Birds of the World

  Author:   Donna Love, Joyce Turley,  
  Publisher:  Mountain Press Publishing

Among the most widely distributed bird species on earth, ospreys live on every continent except Antarctica. Their enormous, highly visible nests and exceptional tolerance for people make ospreys one of the most readily observed of all birds of prey. In this scientific yet light-hearted book, readers will become acquainted with ospreys and their life cycle, from courtship, nesting, and raising young to their yearly migrations. Lovely illustrations bring these birds and their aquatic world to life. Suggested activities for home or classroom give kids the chance to explore what it’s like to fly, live, and fish like an osprey.

To help with loon conservation she serves as an officer for the Montana Loon Society and speaks statewide on behalf of Montana's loons. Using her art education background, she developed a children's loon program, "Loon Tunes and Water Ballons," for use in grade schools. This program formed the basis of her book, Loons.
