Ornithologist, ecologist, naturalist and poet Dr. Robert W. Nero of Winnipeg is the acknowledged North American authority on the Great Gray Owl.
"Like his earlier book, Woman By the Shore, it is rather like an album of snapshots to leaf through ... here is Bob walking the dog, here in the garden with Ruth, here pensively watching from his window. Each poem is carefully crafted to reveal the essence of one event and his appreciation of it."
- From the introduction by Ardythe McMaster

A well-known scientist and educator with numerous natural history publications to his credit, Robert W. Nero has attracted attention in recent years through published collections of his poetry. Woman By the Shore (1990), The Mulch Pile (1993) and Spring Again (1997) firmly established Bob Nero's standing in the field of poetry. Several creditable poems also appeared in a well-received book about his travels with a tame Great Gray Owl: Lady Grayl: Owl With a Mission (1994). Even a recent account of his archaeological exploits, The Site: A Personal Odyssey (2001), contains some appropriate poetry. His most recent poetry collection is Growing Old Together (2005); as with all of the aforementioned books, it was published by Natural Heritage Books.
Robert Nero and his wife, Ruth, live in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
