Episode #58: Julie Zickefoose and Saving Jemima: Life and Love with a Hard-Luck Jay

In this episode of OTWTB, host Dawn Hewitt interviews author, artist, and naturalist Julie Zickefoose. As a wildlife rehabilitator, Julie often takes in orphaned and injured birds to nurse back to health. One such charge was a sick and starved baby blue jay, a palm-sized bundle of gray-blue fluff that she named "Jemima." Julie fell hard for this engaging, feisty, and funny jay, a creative muse and source of strength through the author’s own heartbreaking changes. She captures these experiences in her gorgeously illustrated new book, "Saving Jemima: Life and Love with a Hard-Luck Jay."
