Sarah Jane 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; 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. Nesting Grounds is a companion book to Sarah Jane's Flying Colours.
