What Bluebirds Do

What a perfect book for spring!! What Bluebirds Do, written by Pamela F. Kirby dives deep into the world of all things Bluebird. From laying eggs, looking for food, and nesting, to the process of growing from just a newborn chick to a beautiful adult Bluebird, able to fly and find food on their own.

Kirby focuses on one specific pair of Eastern Bluebirds, watching their every move, building them a nest, and even leaving out small meal worms for an extra snack for the birds. The photographs are simply brilliant, the amazing blues of the Bluebird really popping on the page and exhibiting to the reader what a really extraordinary animal this is.

The author also includes a short description of three other types of Bluebirds in the back of the book, along with a section on bringing more Bluebirds to your yard, a glossary, and a "More Information" section.

A really delightful book, this belongs on library shelves for sure.
