9780547003092: The Bluebird Effect: Uncommon Bonds with Common Birds

Julie Zickefoose lives for the moment when a wild, free living bird that she has raised or rehabilitated comes back to visit her; their eyes meet and they share a spark of understanding. Her reward for the grueling work of rescuing birds—such as feeding baby hummingbirds every twenty minutes all day long—is her empathy with them and the satisfaction of knowing the world is a birdier and more beautiful place.

The Bluebird Effect is about the change that's set in motion by one single act, such as saving an injured bluebird—or a hummingbird, swift, or phoebe. Each of the twenty five chapters covers a different species, and many depict an individual bird, each with its own personality, habits, and quirks. And each chapter is illustrated with Zickefoose's stunning watercolor paintings and drawings. Not just individual tales about the trials and triumphs of raising birds, The Bluebird Effect mixes humor, natural history, and memoir to give readers an intimate story of a life lived among wild birds.

From the Back Cover:

Advance praise for "The Bluebird Effect"
"It is hard to describe all the things that are beautiful about this book. It s beautifully conceived, beautifully written, and beautifully illustrated. Zickefoose s knowledge of birds is profound, her observations of them are fascinating, and her accounts of them are trustworthy. To be informed and delighted at the same time is a rare experience, thus "The Bluebird Effect "is the perfect Christmas present, thank you present, or hostess present. I m going to buy copies to lend to people because sometimes people don t give them back, and I want always to have one. It is one of the most informative and charming books I ve read in years." Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of "The Hidden Life of Dogs"
"Julie Zickefoose has a giant heart and an eye and ear perfectly tuned to the world of birds, especially those that are broken or lost. Whether she s cooking up an insect omelet for a nestful of orphaned chimney swifts or allowing a curious hummingbird to slip its tongue into her nose, Julie s love for birds knows no bounds. Her paintings and sketches are magical, and her book is sheer delight." Melissa Block, host of NPR's "All Things Considered"
"Julie Z. is one in a million, and her paintings and anything she writes about birds are to be cherished and savored." Jane Alexander, actress, writer, and birder
"
