Stunning full-color photographs reveal the fascinating home life of a pair of Eastern bluebirds in this John Burroughs Nature Books for Young Readers Award winner. A sky-blue male and his young mate perch and flutter as they select the perfect place to lay their eggs and raise their chicks--a nest box built especially for them. Soon, hatchlings gape hungrily for their next meal. The mother alights at the opening with a beak full of worms. Later, the father launches himself from the nest box, carrying away a chick-dropping-in-a-sack. As the chicks grow, fledge, and learn to find food on their own, award-winning photographer Pamela Kirby is there, capturing close-ups and action shots. Through her photos and simple text, she enthralls young readers with the natural beauty and amazing behaviors of these beloved backyard birds.
