About the Author

William ‘Ashley’ Hewson resides in Sydney, Australia as a husband, father and grandfather, and has spent most of his life working in medical science laboratories, from which he has recently retired. Ashley’s wife also shares his love of observing and studying bird behaviour as well as  photographing Australia’s beautiful birds. They often go out together on birding dates, which he shares in his weekly blog posts on his website.

Ashley has united his birding passion and his photography with his passion for lifestyle and family counselling (Adv. Dip. of  Counselling & Family Therapy) to author two unique books in which he integrates his photography with helpful life skills learnt from the behaviour of  popular  Australian birds.

Ashley is aware, from his own childhood experiences, of the need to encourage and assist the healthy development of our young people in making wise life choices. He hosts a website and  weekly blog  which also complements his book and shares additional information.

Due to the sell-out success of his first edition of “What Birds Teach Us” he was asked to produce an even better second edition which is both improved and enlarged, addressing the current concerns of the child in its formative years. This book has received many positive reviews and comments and continues to be his legacy, originally written for his four grandchildren and now for all young people.

Ashley has also written a second book “Flight of a Fledgling” Growing Up and Leaving Home, dedicated to his three adult children. This book due to be released early 2021, will address important personal and relational considerations for teens and young adults, as they prepare to leave The Nest and navigate their lives in the world.
