  1. Enjoyed these stories. Also, I want to tell you that while I was reader Better to Rest, I had one of those ‘shriek’ moments when Liam said he’d researched ravens, and read Bernd Heinrich. Bernd was my husband’s office mate when they were grad students at UCLA, down in the basement of the Biology building (although we called him Bernie). Small world. Last place I would have expected to see his name.
