Originally a radio broadcast, this document explores the fraternal nature of bird watching. It was included in the papers of Dr. James A. Macnab, Dr. Jane Claire Dirks-Edmunds's mentor at Linfield College. The article mentions various books by bird-watching authorities and naturalists from around the Pacific Northwest.

Dirks-Edmunds, a 1937 graduate of Linfield, graduated from the University of Illinois in 1941; she returned to teach in the Biology department at Linfield from 1941-1974.
