Product Details

The National Audubon Society's annual Christmas Bird Count stars in this charming picture book, just right for young citizen scientists, bird watchers, and nature aficionados.

'A wonderful introduction to bird-watching and the concept of observing nature... Parents be warned: this book is so appealing that, come next December, you may find yourself out in the cold, counting birds.' - Booklist Online

For the New England Christmas Bird Count, young Ava and her mother prepare to be the best 'citizen scientists' they can be. With the help of their team leader Big Al, they record the tally of all the birds they see. Ava dutifully counts all the birds along the way, using her most important tools- her eyes and ears- and the birding identification techniques she's learned. But will she locate her favorite raven again this year in time for their town's annual Christmas Bird Count party?

Author Susan Edwards Richmond introduces young readers to birdwatching with simple explanations of birdwatching techniques and clear descriptions of bird habitats. Stephanie Fizer Coleman's charming illustrations add color and context to a joyful story that's sure to inspire the citizen scientist in us all.

Backmatter includes more information about all the birds featured in the book and about the Christmas Bird Count, the nation's longest-running community science bird project.
