Luring in Cerulean Warblers, honoring the volunteer spirit

Author: Hamel, Paul.;

Date: 2008

Source: The Habitat 25(1):13-14.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication


What is it about the cerulean warbler - sometimes described as a "piece of sky" - that inspires people to trek out into the hot, buggy Arkansas woods in the middle of June? The story we'll tell here - partly in his own rather succinct words - is that of a Doc Weaver, a retired general practitioner who has given his time and unique skills to the effort to pull a small bird back from the edge of extinction.
