On window ledges and underneath bridges, on statues and inside streetlights, birds of many kings make their homes in the heart of the city. Barn owls and finches, pigeons and crows - these and others have found ways to survive in a sometimes harsh world of glass and concrete.
In this delightful and unusual book Barbara Bash explores a little-known aspect of city life with wit and imagination. Her brilliant watercolor illustrations let readers peek into a hidden world, showing us a tiny house wren nestled in a work glove, or a killdeer watching over its eggs by the railroad tracks. Her book will inspire readers with wonder and admiration for the resourcefulness of these adaptable creatures that have found ways to survive, and even thrive, in the urban environments that now make up so much of our country.
