and Concepts for the Field (with co-author Brian Sullivan) and The ABA Field 
Guide to the Birds of Pennsylvania. Based in Philadelphia, George spends much 
of his free time outdoors, but also loves Philly sports teams, and the city’s 
dining scene and nightlife.  Copies of George’s book “Better Birding …” will be 
available for sale at the meeting.
