Bird Watching with Ben

by: Ben Gelman

Southern Illinois' favorite bird watcher and journalist, Ben Gelman, relates his bird watching experiences. Anyone interested in the birds of Southern Illinois will enjoy this classic.

While still a high school student in the Bronx, Ben Gelman was privileged to go on bird walks with young men who would achieve fame as ornithologists: Joseph Hickey, Allan Cruikshank, and Roger Tory Peterson. In 1956 he joined the staff of the Southern Illinoisan, serving as photographer, reporter, regional editor, Sunday news editor, and columnist until 1982. He is presently managing editor for the SIU Courier, a weekly newspaper published by Southern Illinois University.
