The Critters Of “The Southern Wildlife Watcher”

Rob Simbeck is one of the most widely-read naturalists here in the Southeast.

Back in the fall, I caught up with the Nashville-based author about his latest book, "The Southern Wildlife Watcher:  Notes of a Naturalist."

He tells the stories of three dozen creatures - common and not so common - around us, from the hummingbird and the bald eagle to the bullfrog to the bobcat.
