Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The beautiful images found in Missouri in Flight engender interest and wonder on the part of the observer, while also conveying the author’s contagious excitement about the topic.”—Oliver Schuchard, Professor Emeritus of Photography at the University of Missouri-Columbia

         “Mundy Hackett shares with the reader the learning process and evolution of bird watcher to bird photographer. He offers something to everyone: from just go outside and sit and watch to make a plan of when, how, where, who, and what in order to be in the right place at the right time, with the right equipment. Missouri in Flight leads us beyond camera and lens to teach us how patience and knowledge of bird behavior can create the opportunity to participate in some of nature’s seldom-seen events.”—Brad Jacobs, Ornithologist, Missouri Department of Conservation
