"The Birds of Towhee Lane" celebrates the vibrancy and diversity of birdlife on a nine acre parcel in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Anyone with an interest in birds and their natural history, whether a novice or seasoned birder, will enjoy the perspective this book offers into the lives and behaviors of individual birds within a western oak woodland. A continuing thread running through the narrative is the author's long-lasting relationship with a remarkable scrub-jay who steps up to adopt a young jay in the author's care. Backed by well-researched facts, "The Birds of Towhee Lane" spans a range of emotions: humor, joy, heartbreak, and when a Cooper's Hawk moves into the Towhee woods, it takes on the excitement of a suspense story. Delightful woodblock style images introduce each chapter's theme or featured species.
