About the author:
Several years ago, Steve Hutchcraft left a successful business career to pursue his love for nature photography. As a photographer, Steve has built a portfolio of award-winning images, including his photograph of courting White-tailed Tropicbirds that won the prestigious North American Nature Photography Association's Showcase Award in 2006.

As a father, he has looked for ways to share his love of nature, and especially birds, with his young daughter. B is for Bufflehead is part of his ongoing effort to do just that. By sharing it with others, he hopes it will interest, entertain, and inspire many other future nature lovers.

Steve is a graduate of Stanford University and holds an MBA from Harvard University. He currently serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Muir Heritage Land Trust in the San Francisco Bay Area and has provided pro-bono strategic consulting for other environmentally focused organizations. Steve resides in Alamo, California with his wife June and daughter Heather.
