“Juanita Baker, Ph.D., is proof positive of the old adage: “Birds of a feather flock together.” To best illustrate her avian affinity, she has compiled a captivating book that captures the beauty of some of Florida’s finest feathered friends.
“Florida Birds Exposed” is a compilation of ‘Bird Photo of the Month’ submissions to the Pelican Island Audubon Society from 2009 to 2019. Each is accompanied by poems and essays describing the unique attributes of the featured birds.
The book evolved out of an Introduction to Birdwatching talk and field trip Baker had given to the Indian River Photography Club a decade ago. Considered by many to be the “mother hen” of birding photography in Indian River County, Baker wanted a way to share her love of birds and photography with others – to promote the important role birds play in our lives, as well as to demonstrate the sheer joy of watching them.”
