William Burt is a naturalist, photographer, and writer with a passion  
for wild places and elusive birds-especially marshes and the shy  
birds that inhabit them. Tonight Bill will discuss the creation of  
his most recent book, Marshes: The Disappearing Edens. His  
photography is stunningly beautiful, not only capturing the shy birds  
of the marshlands but also celebrating the allure of these unique  
habitats. We will reap the wonderful benefits of his countless hours  
spent in marshes all over the continent documenting that habitat's  
quiet, yet spectacular appeal. Burt's photographs and stories have  
appeared in numerous nature and wildlife magazines, and he is author  
of two distinguished books on birds: Shadowbirds (1994) and Rare and  
Elusive Birds of North America (2001), based on a 16-year pursuit of  
America's 20 most alluring "mystery birds." Burt's traveling  
exhibitions have been shown at 26 museums across the U.S. and Canada.
