About this book

June Osborne really would rather be birding than doing just about anything else. In this fascinating book, she leads readers through backyards and river bottoms, far and near, savoring the colors, sounds, and playful busy-ness of American Robins, Vermilion Flycatchers, Varied Thrushes, and a hundred other feathered friends. Osborne has introduced thousands of home owners to their common backyard birds, and in this collection she does so for her readers, as well as shares her nature experiences traveling to places near and far. Each April, she is resident birder at Neal's Lodges in the Texas Hill Country, where the Nature Quest festival is held every spring. While giving us a glimpse of one woman's spiritual growth through her experiences with birds and nature, Osborne also conveys a wealth of information about birds, both familiar and exotic, and about the enjoyment one can have in getting to know them.
