About the Author:

John C. Robinson was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. John's interest in nature and the outdoors was sparked at an early age after reading Jack London's White Fang and Call of the Wild. In 1977, he enrolled in Iowa State University's Fisheries and Wildlife Biology curriculum, and he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in this field of study in 1982. While attending Iowa State University, John took a course in Ornithology in the spring of 1979. This course eventually led to the development of his favorite past-time: the study of birds.

John C. Robinson has been employed as an Assistant National Wildlife Refuge Manager with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (1979-1988), and as a Wildlife Biologist with the U.S. Forest Service (1988-current). He also owns and operates LANIUS Software, a computer database development and consulting company located in Fairfield, CA.

In 1981, Robinson began to maintain a record of all the birds that he found at various locations across the United States. Today, he uses a computer database to track the more than 54,000 bird sightings he has made. In 1990, John's interest in birds reached its first significant milestone with the publication of his book, An Annotated Checklist of the Birds of Tennessee, by the University of Tennessee Press at Knoxville. John's study of birds has continued to grow since then, culminating in the development and publication of the comprehensive North American Bird Reference Book CD-ROM.
