This book will change the way you look at the birds that are right outside your window.
When her lifelong dream of becoming an ornithologist doesn't pan out, Julie Zickefoose uses her passion to become a wildlife rehabilitator specializing in the care of wild birds. In this beautifully illustrated book, she shares her experiences with them.
Arranged by season, each tale is narrative nonfiction at its very best, a fascinating combination of ornithological field notes and heartwarming stories about the emotional bonds that develop between Zickfoose and her avian subjects.
Engaging and well-written, those who love birds, nature, nonfiction, or anyone who wishes to learn more about the world that exists in their very own backyard, will treasure this book. You don't even have to know anything about birds to thoroughly enjoy it!
Julie Zickefoose will be in Worthington on Wednesday, March 27, 2013!
I worked for Worthington Libraries from 2007-2013, and consider myself a jack of all library trades. When not reading or talking about books of all types, I enjoy baking, crafting, the local Columbus music scene and my dog, a whippet who can run faster than you (and your little dog, too!).
