Phoebes 02

A Black Phoebe

I have been writing a monthly article for a set of three neighbor magazines for the past couple of years now. These magazines are distributed to a handful of east bay neighborhoods. I have shared one or two of the articles in previous posts, and am thinking of doing so more regularly, so here is the article on Phoebes that I wrote for the November issue of Berkeley Hills Living, Monclair Living, and Piedmont Living magazines.

Cover of the August issue of Berkeley Hills Living.

In December of 2016, Berkeley Hills Living published their first issue. Berkeley Hills Living is a small magazine produced by Best Version Media, and published monthly. The goal is to create a community magazine where residents of the Berkeley hills neighborhoods can share information, events, local happenings, etc. After reading the first couple of issues, and liking the idea of a community magazine, I proposed the idea of writing a monthly column on the birds of the Berkeley hills. The publishers thought is sounded like a great idea, and my first piece for “Bird of Berkeley” appeared in the April issue. I have continued to contribute pieces to each issue since. So far, there has not been digital copies that have been easily available, but the August issue just came out, and I received a digital copy. You can check out the whole issue here, and read my piece on bird feeder care and maintenance on page 15.

It has been fun to add to this magazine, and fun to have my pieces meet with so much support and enthusiasm from the readership! I certainly plan to continue contributing material, and will share future issues of the magazine if the digital copies continue to be distributed. Enjoy!
