Written from the birds' points of view, the tales in this collection feature dramatic bird-rescue stories ranging from the smallest hummingbird to the largest golden eagle. Filled with informative facts about the vast variety of bird species rescued - whether a member of a native species or one of the migratory visitors passing through the Texas Flyway - this volume discusses the miraculous similarities and differences of each species. Focusing on the importance of conservation and illuminating the joys of rescuing injured wildlife, the stories have one thread that tie them all together: a feisty, articulate avian champion is both the author and the heroine of this eloquently delivered collection based on real-life efforts.
