related and after some investigation on my part, I learned that Duck Tales has
been added to the Excite Education Guide under "Bird Species A - Z". Also, my Muscovy Ducks Web Page has been listed on
"Yahooligans!" under science, nature, wildlife, birds and ducks. And, in addition, my Geese,
Muscovy Ducks and Pekin Ducks Web Pages appear in About.com's The
Fledgling Corner - Birding For Kids, under the

In late May, I received an e-mail from Stacy Smith asking me
to contribute a chapter based upon my opossum story, to a book
she is editing entitled "In the Eyes of the Wild: An Anthology of Wildlife Poetry and Short Stories". She
is not only self-publishing the book but she is also donating all of the
royalties to her favorite wildlife charity, Wildlife
Forever. In September 2000, Stacy self-published another book called "Reflections
In Nature". You can take a sneak peek at my story, "One
Brief Moment In Time ...". I hope that you enjoy it!

Gardeners' Supply Catalog - one of my very favorite gardening catalogs - loved duck tales and decided to do a gardeners' "Success Story" on me and my ducks entitled Gardening With Wildlife: How One Gardener Makes It Work
Ducktales has been included in "Web Sites On Birds For Teachers", an educational site that lists all sorts of wonderful birding sites for students ... such as Audubon, Cornell, government sponsored, etc. ... Of course, they were rated "excellent" while Ducktales was rated "good" ... Their description: "A site from a family on Long Island with year-round bird "residents". Includes very good information on different species. A good site for primary students. Good" ... but I was ecstatic to be in such illustrious company!
