Janet M. Ruth 8904083


Janet Ruth is an emeritus research ornithologist. She has published scientific papers on bird ecology and natural history stories in bird magazines. Her writing focuses on connections to the natural world. She has recent poems in The Ekphrastic Review, The Heron’s Nest, and Manzano Mountain Review, and in several regional anthologies including four volumes of the Poets Speak anthology—HERS, WATER, WALLS, and SURVIVAL—and "Weaving the Terrain: 100-Word Southwestern Poems." In June 2018, she published her first book, Feathered Dreams: Celebrating Birds in Poems, Stories & Images.

Here, there and everywhere we each experience a connection with Nature. In Feathered Dreams, Janet Ruth--ornithologist, poet, artist, and international birder--shares her love of birds through poem, story, and image. She relies beautifully on her scientist's eye and artist's heart to recreate the magic we can encounter when we stop to watch and listen.
