A joyful primer on the pleasures of bird-watching merges haiku, notes for identifying species, and exquisite watercolor illustrations.

In spare and graceful words, poet and birder Michael J. Rosen captures
the forecasting call of the mysterious cuckoo as well as essential characteristics of more than twenty commonly seen North American birds. This artfully compiled field notebook — enriched by the evocative artwork of watercolorist Stan Fellows — captures the excitement of recognizing a bird, whether a darting kingfisher, a wandering wild turkey, or a chirpy house sparrow.
Back matter includes notes for birdwatchers and haiku lovers.

Review:

A rare gift for young and old alike, this exquisite book about birds combines delicate verses and stunning watercolors that celebrate the natural world...Text and images, like a well-rehearsed duet, balance and echo each other's beauty.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Rosen's poetic reflection eloquently captures the essence of this season-by-season celebration of 24 common American birds, and of haiku...gorgeous watercolor sketches on double-page spreads.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
