Good Afternoon, The wife of one of our fellow birders (Jeff Del Col, of Phillipi) who died in 2016 has asked me to share a link to a book of poetry written by Jeff. I am hopeful that members of this list will find enjoyment in what Jeff has written. Please see the request below as well as the link to the newly published work. Thank you, Pete

My late husband, Jeff Del Col, derived so much pleasure from his interactions with the birding group, and as you may recall, he was an avid birder.
Jeff was also a poet, and several months before his death, he had begun putting together a collection of his poems. He had not yet completed that project before he died, but I was able to finish it and seek publication. The book was published a few weeks ago. Since many of his poems are about the birds he encountered in West Virginia, it recently occurred to me that some of the members of the WV birding group might enjoy those poems. So I am wondering if you would be willing to share information about the collection with the group. Here is the link to it on Amazon.com if you would like to read more about it:
