San Antonio Book Festival

April 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

“Cemetery Birding” builds upon the unique and approachable experiences introduced in Jennifer L. Bristol’s first book, “Parking Lot Birding”. While cemeteries offer accessible places to bird watch, Bristol highlights the need to tread carefully and ethically when exploring these sacred spaces. Her treatment of each of the nearly 100 locations provides information about what birds can be observed in various seasons and offers readers a snapshot of the cemetery and community’s history. Filled with rich photos, Bristol deciphers headstone symbolism in “Tombstone Tales” and offers fun facts about individual species of birds in “Tombstone Tails.” Locations range from the heart of Houston to the wide-open spaces of West Texas and every ecoregion in between.
