About this book

An important wildlife artist, Taylor paints daily at his home new Edgewater, Maryland - overlooking Pennington Pond, where visitors include great blue herons, belted kingfishers and a variety of ducks and songbirds.

Mr. Taylor clearly loves what he does...A striking book of illustrations and journal entries.--Tim Warren, 'Baltimore Sun Magazine' "Naturalists will appreciate Birds of the Chesapeake Bay. Excerpts from the field journal of local wildlife artist John Taylor accompany 40 of his most recent paintings. Taylor's personal accounts eloquently complement his beautiful paintings, putting the reader by his side as he wades through the rushes, listening for the cries of the birds overhead."--'Baltimore Magazine' "The 40 paintings, reproduced one to a page, capture the beauty and diversity of the Bay's wildfowl...The journal notes--brief, descriptive narrative passages--recount Taylor's encounters with each species and are pleasantly reminiscent of Thoreau's 'On Walden Pond'."--'Maryland Magazine' Published with the generous support of the Chesapeake Bay Trust and the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company
