Birder's Eye View

Diana Churchill has a passion for birds. She loves watching them, photographing them, and reading about them. Diana especially loves sharing her passion with others. Whether working at Wild Birds Unlimited, leading field trips, or writing articles, Diana’s enthusiasm for birds is contagious.

Since 2001, Diana has been writing a twice-monthly column, “Birder’s Eye View,” for the Savannah Morning News. She has finally taken the advice of her readers and assembled a group of these entertaining articles to give Low Country residents and visitors a personal tour of the area’s avian delights.

Birder’s Eye View: Savannah & the Low Country – includes 53 articles – “one-a-week for a year, with one to grow on,” says Churchill, a Savannah native. Since readers continually ask “When will the goldfinches get back?’ or ‘When do the hummingbirds leave?’; the articles are organized by season.

Birder’s Eye View includes an overview to each season with detailed lists of each season’s specialty birds, followed by four articles per month. Articles feature particular bird families that visit the Low Country during a given season, showcase celebrity birds, or provide information about seasonal bird events, such as nesting or migration.

Kenn Kaufman, well-known birder and author of the Kaufman guides, has written the foreword.

Of course, when it comes to birds, a picture is worth a thousand words. Birder’s Eye View contains almost 500 of Churchill’s beautiful color photographs providing an intimate look at the region’s unique habitats and its ever- changing cast of feathered inhabitants.

The book was written with both the casual bird watcher and the dedicated enthusiast in mind. The “In Your Yard” section offers guidance for turning your yard into a welcoming bird habitat, and includes a quick reference guide to 96 of the area’s common backyard birds, while the “Top Locations” section provides a detailed list of thirty-four of the Low Country’s top bird watching locations, ranging from Charleston, SC down to Cumberland Island, GA.
