Kevin J. Cook

Kevin is always doing something: bird class, wildflower field trip, lecture, seminar, tour, library talk...something.Keep track of what he's doing, when he's doing it, and how you can participate by logging on to Wildlife Window Schedule.
By the light of an aquarium, and that light alone, Kevin labored long into one particular night to write a speech for a high school speech contest. s he wrote, midnight became one and then two in the morning; as he rewrote, fish shadows drifted back and forth across his paper.
Kevin wrote in a bedroom that had become a peculiar blend of conservatory, museum, library, laboratory, and studio.Egg cartons became storage cabinets for collections of rocks, eggs, shells, bones, and teeth.Plaster casts of animal's paws and hooves had their place on the shelf next to a sand-dollar and a block of wood drilled with holes to hold upright the feathers found during trips afield. ore than artifacts, these were the mementos of a childhood spent catching fireflies and dragonflies, frogs and snakes, a childhood spent saving baby Blue Jays and Robins, rearing baby Fox Squirrels and Eastern Cottontails.
Other bedroom shelves held the National Geographic Society books on birds, mammals, and fishes that he had purchased by saving the two-cent deposit refunds on pop bottles that he collected from construction sites.
On yearbook signing day at the close of high school, Kevin's three English teachers advised him to consider alternatives to college because he probably would not pass the freshman English requirements.Ignoring their advice, he exempted college English by testing out of the subject with high scores. e has since gone on to publish more than 6,000 pieces of writing.
Besides writing, Kevin has guided nearly 200 wildlife observation tours, has taught day-long seminars on various wildlife subjects, has taught classes on subjects as varied as nature writing and gardening for birds, and done guest lectures at various conferences and meetings.
Though best known for his passion for birds, Kevin reserves a special place in his heart for fishes because in a subtle way they saved his life.
After dreadful experiences in fourth and fifth grades, Kevin stepped into Mr. Reese's sixth-grade classroom and immediately spotted his two 10-gallon aquariums.Recess became opportunity to catch food for the fishes.
t the end of the school year, Mr. Reese suggested that Kevin take an aquarium home for the summer, and that glass box of water became his window into the world.
Kevin has spent his life paying attention to life. f it lives, he has probably read about it then gone looking for it, if not in the field on his own, then in a museum just to satisfy a curiosity that never fades.
But his work is not done until he has shared his passion for life with others who enjoy an owl hoot in the night or a bug in the pond.
