Baby songbirds develop so quickly that some can fly just 11 days after hatching! In 2002, Artist and naturalist Julie Zickefoose began to draw and paint wild nestlings day-by-day, bearing witness to their swift growth. Over the next 13 years, she documented these developments in 17 bird species. More than 400 of these life-sized studies wriggle and hop across the pages of her latest book, Baby Birds: An Artist Looks into the Nest. Peek into the nest with Zickefoose as she shares her ground-breaking work and intimate knowledge of these species through images, videos, and colorful anecdotes. A book-signing follows. Co-sponsored by MassAudubon and the Essex County Ornithological Club. This program is made possible by a generous gift from Tim and Joanie Ingraham in memory of Dorothy Addams Brown, beloved honorary PEM trustee and devoted ECOC member. A brief business meeting of the ECOC is held from 7:30-7:45 pm.
