Stan Tekiela: The Man Behind the Field Guides
When we were kids, one of our first glimpses into the world of birds came from a small field guide called “Birds of Wisconsin.” This book sparked a passion that would eventually become a life-changing hobby. The author of this field guide, Stan Tequila, has since created guides for various creatures across North America. We had the opportunity to chat with Stan about his books and his career as a naturalist.
Stan Tequila: Thank you for having me.
Interviewer: How did you get into making field guides?
Stan Tequila: Ever since I was young, I had this desire to write nature books, especially field guides. I started by creating my own handwritten books filled with pictures and information about the nature in my own backyard. Eventually, I had the opportunity to write my first book on wild edible plants, and from there, I just kept going. Now, I’ve written over 200 books in the past 35 years.
Interviewer: What’s the process of compiling a field guide like?
Stan Tequila: It always starts with creating a species list. You need to decide which animals or plants you’re going to include in the guide. Then, I consider the audience and write specifically for them. After that, it’s a matter of sitting down and writing, referring to references and my own knowledge of the subject. It’s a thorough process, but also very rewarding.
Interviewer: Do you have a favorite field guide that you’ve worked on?
Stan Tequila: Well, I’ve worked on so many guides that it’s hard to choose just one. However, I will say that the mammals of Texas and the bears book were particularly fun to work on. I spent a lot of time on location, photographing these animals and learning about them. It was an incredible experience.
Interviewer: Do you have any advice for young naturalists or birders?
Stan Tequila: Keep going. It’s not easy, but if you’re passionate about it, don’t give up. I do multiple things to make a living, but it’s all worth it because I get to do what I love.
Interviewer: What’s your favorite bird or animal to photograph?
Stan Tequila: I don’t have a favorite because each subject I photograph becomes my favorite in that moment. Whether it’s hummingbirds, bears, or any other animal, I find joy and excitement in photographing them all.
Interviewer: Where can people learn more about your work and purchase your books?
Stan Tequila: They can visit my website at naturesmart.com. I have a bookstore tab where they can find all my field guides and other books.
