During this time he wrote this book's predecessor, Seasonal Guide to the Natural Year: Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia (1996). He also contributed to Wild in the City: A Guide to Portland's Natural Areas. Davis and his wife, Sally, live in Portland. When not pursuing his natural history interests, he plays guitar in rock and roll bands, although not nearly enough these days.
