“He really was an enchanting person. In some way he was like the spiritual father of everybody…. It is hard to imagine Central Park without Charles Kennedy.” Marie Winn, author of Red-tails in Love, and close friend of Charles, remembering him after his death in October 2004

OWLS OF CENTRAL PARK is now available!!!

I’m back and with a new book and a new publisher—Cerberus Press!!! I am so very pleased to announce the publication and availability of Owls of Central Park: Essays and Photographs by Charles F. Kennedy.

The publisher, Mark Perna, and designer, David Mittelman, have done a beautiful job with this book and we have it available at a very nice price! It is available at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.  Just in time for holiday giving! Click on book images in right column to purchase.

Book summary:
Charles Kennedy loved the natural world of Central Park with a singular passion and Owls of Central Park provides the evidence. When he died in 2004 he left behind this remarkable collection of unique photographs, rich essays, field notes, and masterful haiku poems. Owls of Central Park captures the nighttime adventures of Kennedy and his intrepid New York City friends as they explore the habits and intrigues of several owl species in Central Park. The reader will find plenty of hard owl science and history, e.g., visiting a clinic where an owl's cataracts are investigated or in a series of photos that refute the long-standing belief that owls eyes are fixed in their sockets. There is also plenty of high adventure, great photographs, and fine writing. If you are a fan of owls, or of New York City and Central Park, or if you simply love gorgeous nature photos and stories, this is a book you will love.

AND more great news from my little corner: Cerberus Press has now published the other two Charles Kennedy books, too, in absolutely stunning renditions---- and at the nice price.

More to come… Thanks so much for continuing to follow this blog, even as I have been away from it for a long while. There is new energy for the blog. I’m glad to have you along!  Much love, Steve.
