This attractive book provides readers a glimpse at uncommon bird species through words and art. The text by Nancy Overcott describes the natural history and field marks of these special birds, but the book is more than descriptions alone like you might find in a field guide. The author conveys the information through a personal story about each species. Beautifully detailed watercolors by Dana Gardner accompany the accounts of each bird. Fine storytelling and beautiful artwork combine in 50 Uncommon Birds to produce a rich overall experience for the reader.
