The Hummingbird will build her nest,
The size? A ping pong ball.
Secured to twigs with spider silk,
This moss lined nest won't fall.
Sarah Jane has created 20 luminous oil paintings depicting 10 familiar birds nesting, and put them together in Nesting Grounds. Each bird has 2 devoted paintings: The female in her nest and the nest with eggs. Additionally, the clutches in each nest increases incrementally from one to ten-the Sparrow having one egg up to the Wood Duck having ten. A 4-line verse accompanies each image describing the nesting ground unique to each bird. This artistically rendered book is ideal for artists and birders of all ages, and is a wonderful introduction to the nesting grounds of common birds. Birds featured in Nesting Grounds: Sparrow, Hummingbird, Robin, Cardinal, Plover, Goldfinch, Snow Bunting, Nuthatch, Chickadee, Wood Duck. Sarah Jane delights in her natural surroundings. She is
inspired by the scenic beauty where she has lived, including her birthplace St. John's, Newfoundland. She draws immense enjoyment from watching birds visiting her back yard in Fall River, Nova Scotia.
