In “Songbirds in a Nosedive,” Tom recounts the plight of some of our favourite backyard visitors, whose numbers are plummeting in the face of several environmental factors. Stories like this are of special interest to Tom, especially when they have a local angle. A regular Watershed contributor, he has also written on the fate of wild rice in Rice Lake, the restoration of the natural savannah on the Alderville reserve and a recent dispute over a for-profit incinerator in Port Hope. He lives on a hobby farm in Hamilton Township.
