New Hampshire Photographer John Rockwood has had numerous photos published in Birds & Blooms Magazine, Appalachia Magazine, NH Magazine and Natural New England Magazine. The March 2008 issue of Birds & Blooms Extra contains his photos in the article “Nesting in Harmony” about great horned owls nesting in great blue heron rookeries. The November 2008 issue of Birds & Blooms Extra contains his photos in the article “A Date With An Egret”. The September 2008 issue of Birds & Blooms Extra contains an excerpt of his book “Adventures with Grapenut” about a Loon Chick, John chronicled during the 2007 season. His “Loon Pair” photo was published in The Best of Birds and Bloom 2007 book. John also won the 2004 Auburn, NH Photo contest with his favorite picture, “Nesting Loon”.
