"I was a small boy when I saw my first painted bunting near the North Carolina coast. Gazing out the car window I remember, to this day, the brilliant red of a male perched on a phone wire. My next painted bunting was seen near Sweetwater, Texas, the summer after I graduated from college. Painted buntings are birds that you just don't forget. This may account for the early American (French) name of nonpareil that literally means 'without equal'."
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.
