My Latest 'Bird Watcher': Sandy Komito
August 31, 2011
My latest column in The Record and Herald News is on Sandy Komito, the legendary birder from Fair Lawn who is one of the main characters in the book "The Big Year" and the inspiration for "the bad guy" in an upcoming big-name Hollywood comedy of the same name.
Sandy holds the record for the most birds seen in North America in one year -- the basis for the book.
Sandy stopped giving interviews after the book came out several years ago and he didn't like the way he was treated -- but he was kind enough to make an exception and talk with me.
