"Reproduction is critical for any species and the fewer their numbers, the more critical it is. The urge to paint these ground-nesting warblers at their nest was great. But, with encouraging news of their numbers, I felt that there was something to sing about. I live in the North Carolina mountains and have done a lot of work in my yard to attract birds. With more Kirtlands in the world, I keep hoping that some early September day, this Bahama-bound traveler will stop by the Sill’s Twilight Motel and enjoy a bath, a few bugs, and a quiet rest."
John Sill's work has appeared in a number of magazines, including Bird Watcher's Digest, Natural History, South Carolina Wildlife, and American Artist's Watercolor as well as in several books. He has also illustrated and co-written (along with his wife, Cathy, and his brother, Ben) three birding parodies.
