Waiting for a Warbler

In early April, as Owen and his sister search the hickories, oaks, and dogwoods for returning birds, a huge group of birds leaves the misty mountain slopes of the Yucatan peninsula for the very long flight across the Gulf of Mexico to their summer nesting grounds.

Aloft over the vast ocean, the birds encourage each other with squeaky chirps that say, ""We are still alive. We can do this.""

In alternating spreads, we wait and hope with Owen, then struggle through the storm with the warbler. This moving story with its hopeful ending appeals to us to preserve the things we love.
