Clayton Grider is a University of Tennessee Knoxville alumnus, yet his love for birds began much earlier. Equipped with his mother’s binoculars, a young Clayton would watch the robins, blue jays, and cardinals outside his house eating from the bird feeder. In college, his interest in birds broadened to the environment they live in and Clayton took many environmental and water management classes. These experiences inspired him to write his first book How Do Birds Sing a Duet? Today, Clayton is pursuing a teaching career in statistics in Nashville, Tennessee.
