Sanctuary News & Events
Artist and naturalist Julie Zickefoose has had the pleasure of observing many young birds up close— thirteen years, in fact. This extensive experience has given her some fascinating stories to tell. And because she’s an artist, she has created more than 400 colorful paintings of 17 species of birds she watched from egg to fledgling. This work along with her naturalist’s knowledge of bird life are contained in her latest book, Baby Birds: An Artist Looks into the Nest.
