About this title


"Bird in Hand" is a book for young and old alike. It is a true story of the rescue of a near-to-death hummingbird by a gentle soul in whose hand the tiny creature was given a safe harbor to recover. For over three hours, Andrew held the small bird in his hand, while his wife, Teri, freed the bird from confining cobwebs and debris and helped feed it sugar water until "Hummy" was ready to fly again. Teri not only took photos of the rescue, but lent her hand to brilliantly illustrate the story of "Bird in Hand" in watercolor.

A rare event like the recue of a tiny, wild hummingbird, told with clarity by Nadia Nowak, and highlighted by charming art and on-the-spot photography, brings awe and wonder into the hearts of all.
