R. W. Morse Company was formed in 1978 by Bob Morse.
The Company's main areas of focus are:
· Write, Publish and Market Books. Bob and Christina’s life-long interest in birds and bird watching has led the company to write and publish books about birds. After writing A Birder’s Guide to Coastal Washington, the company developed a series of compact, regional guides for beginning and avid bird watchers. Starting with Birds of the Puget Sound Region which became the best selling bird book in the Western US for three successive years other regional guides were developed. Currently six regional, photographic guides are available at independent bookstores and this website.
Has seen over 845 species of birds in the United States including 432 in Washington State, birded throughout Washington since 1960, was founder of the Grays Harbor Shorebird Festival, past member of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council, and longtime member of three local Audubon chapters.
· Christina Duchesne Morse, M.Ed,
Former naturalist (Yellowstone and Everglades National Parks) and retired high school biology teacher, Christina has birded around the United States for many decades. She and Bob live in Olympia, Washington where they own and operate the R. W. Morse Company.
