Birding Hot Spots of Central New Mexico Cover Design

What a thrill it was to open an e-mail from Patricia Clabaugh, production editor for Texas A & M Press and see the cover design for Birding Hot Spots of Central New Mexico. Since the Greater Roadrunner is the New Mexico state bird, the press wanted a photo of a roadrunner for the cover. It was important to Barb Hussey and I that they choose a photo taken by a central New Mexico birder. The press originally thought they wanted the roadrunner in its natural habitat. I love the one they chose taken by Laurel Ladwig, since it shows off its distinctive profile. Laurel is the editor of the Burrowing Owl, Central New Mexico Audubon’s newsletter.

Look for it at a number of locations in central New Mexico this fall. It also will be available on Amazon.com.
