ANITA K BOOTH was raised in the city and became fascinated with birds at an early age. Sparrows, nesting on window sills of the apartment where she and her family lived, were watched and observed as they progressed from eggs to eventual fledglings.

Moving to Southern California and residing there for more than fifty years--fifteen of which in the richly ornithological San Bernardino Mountains and presently in the Coachella Valley--Anita continues with birding research, monitoring, and observation while expanding her range.
