I like to interview interesting people for my Photographing the West podcast and Harry Fuller certainly is one. During a career in journalism, he lost interest in baseball and took up birding instead. After moving to San Francisco, he rapidly advanced from beginning birder to expert birder and began to write about birds. In the process of moving from San Francisco to Ashland, Oregon, he discovered many birding hot spots along I-5 and went on to write a book about them and other birding spots between San Francisco and Seattle.  His second book describes his adventures in finding and documenting the Great Gray Owl in California, Oregon and Washington. Finally, his just published third book describes the natural history of San Francisco from pre-Columbian times to the present.

Harry's journalistic training and experience lead him to do a deep dive into any subject that interests him. You won't regret purchasing any of his books:
