About the Author
A love of birds, a broad engagement with their biology, and a passion for their conservation were hallmarks of Herb Kale's many contributions to ornithology. He received his bachelor's degree from Rutgers University and his doctorate from the University of Georgia. His passion for conservation made him a stalwart of bird protection in Florida for three decades. He was staff ornithologist and vice-president for ornithology at the Florida Audubon Society (FAS). He was a founding member and president (1975-1977) of the Florida Ornithological Society (FOS). He was a founder, supporter, and long-term officer in the Colonial Waterbird Society. As editor of Colonial Waterbirds (1980-84), he guided its development from a proceedings to a refereed journal. He also served the Colonial Waterbird Society on numerous committee assignments, as a member of Council (1977-70, 1991-95), vice-president (1988-89), and president (1990-91). He was a member, since the 1950s, of the Cooper Ornithological Society and the Wilson Ornithological Society and representative of the Colonial Waterbird Society and the Florida Audubon Society to the United States section of the International Council for Bird Preservation.
Karl Karalus was an illustrator and wildlife painter who specialized in birds and illustrated eight books.
