Pat Sutton has studied owls in the wild for 30 years. She lives near Cape May, a world renowned migratory crossroads that is famous for its owl migration. She and her husband (Clay Sutton) wrote the popular book, How to Spot an Owl (1994, now out of print), as well as How to Spot Butterflies (1999), How to Spot Hawks & Eagles (1996), and most recently the landmark book, Birds and Birding at Cape May (Stackpole Books, 2006, 568 pages), the in-depth result of their efforts over many years documenting and protecting the migration and the Cape May area that they so love. Today Pat is a free-lance writer, naturalist, educator, lecturer, tour leader, and wildlife habitat consultant. Her own wildlife garden is a teaching garden included on many tours and featured in programs and workshops she teaches.
