About the Book

Overview

Birds offer endless fascination for those of us patient or lucky enough to catch a glimpse. Fortunately, award-winning writer Jane Yolen and photographer Jason Stemple once again give readers the chance to closely observe a brand-new flock of these creatures in expertly rendered poetry and photographs. Each poem and picture combination beautifully and thoughtfully captures both bird and a moment of time. Brief facts about each bird, reviewed by an ornithologist, are included.

"Splendid photographs. . . . This is a welcome companion to A Mirror to Nature and An Egret's Day (both 2009)." --Kirkus Reviews

"Breathtaking." --Shelf Awareness
