A well-known scientist and educator with numerous natural history publications to his credit, Robert W. Nero has attracted attention in recent years through published collections of his poetry. Woman By the Shore, The Mulch Pile and Spring Again firmly established Bob Nero's standing in the field of poetry.
The Mulch Pile
Ornithologist, ecologist, naturalist and poet Dr. Robert W. Nero of Winnipeg is the acknowledged North American authority on the Great Gray Owl.
"Like his earlier book, Woman By the Shore, it is rather like an album of snapshots to leaf through â€¦ here is Bob walking the dog, here in the garden with Ruth, here pensively watching from his window. Each poem is carefully crafted to reveal the essence of one event and his appreciation of it."
