ABOUT WILLIAM BURT
William Burt is a naturalist, photographer and writer with a passion for wild places and elusive birds – especially marshes, and the shy birds within. His photographs and stories are seen in Smithsonian, Audubon, National Wildlife and other magazines, and he is the author of three books: Shadowbirds (1994); Rare & Elusive Birds of North America (2001); and Marshes: The Disappearing Edens (2007). He lectures often, and his traveling exhibitions have shown at some 35 museums across the U.S. and Canada - including The Carnegie Museum of Natural History, The New Brunswick Museum, The Calgary Science Center, The Liberty The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, and the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
In 1989, for an exhibition of Burt’s photography of marsh birds, Roger Tory Peterson wrote the following:
Most recently he has been photographing certain downy young birds, from the Arctic tundra to the Gulf of Mexico – but they will be seen later.
Bill Burt lives at Old Lyme, Connecticut (USA).
