Mostly by accident (she claims) she became an amateur ornithologistand naturalist, winning awards as her horizons expanded to include research and birdbanding duties from Maine to Peru.Parrots Wood is a journal of a month in Belize, spent on tropical research. while recounting her day-to-day experiences, she reminiscences on earlier times in her life, unexpected friendships, and events that have brought her to a crossroads of age -- in years -- she is not willing to accept. With honesty that can bring tears as well as laughter, Fisk writes of her life as a series of doors to be opened, and some to be shut. Irritated, but undaunted, by her nearly eighty years, she continues to say yes to lifes challenges and encourages us to do so, too.
