Mother-daughter team Dorothy McCuistion and Jefna M. Cohen collaborated on this book about familiar birds that one might encounter in the Pacific Northwest. From the lone red-tailed hawk by the side of the road to the ubiquitous seagull, the birds they have described are our neighbors, inhabiting our shared environment. They have paired dynamic images with rich vocabulary to delight a wide range of readers and draw attention to our avian companions in the skies, trees and undergrowth around us.
