ONCE AROUND THE BLOCK: A BIRDER'S YEAR IN THE WEST VILLAGE animates a baker’s dozen of Keith Michael’s bird watching walks in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood with his cute but irascible Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Millie. With humor, in quest of the new, and while basking in the architectural sights to be seen, Mr. Michael is ever on the lookout for the goings on of the avian population along his West Village streets and beside the ever-humbling Hudson River. Open your eyes, tune your ears, and take a walk – Once Around the Block. 230 color photographs.
