    Julie Zickefoose began her career as a field biologist for the Nature Conservancy. She became a magazine and book illustrator, then began to illustrate her own stories, gleaned from experiences with wild birds and animals. Her monthly commentaries bring a glimpse of Appalachia to NPR’s All Things Considered. Bird Watcher’s Digest has published more than forty of her articles and seventeen cover paintings since 1986.

    Julie Zickefoose lives for the moment when a wild, free living bird that she has raised or rehabilitated comes back to visit her; their eyes meet and they share a spark of understanding. Her reward for the grueling work of rescuing birds—such as feeding baby hummingbirds every twenty minutes all day long—is her empathy with them and the satisfaction of knowing the world is a birdier and more beautiful place.

    The Bluebird Effect is about the change that's set in motion by one single act, such as saving an injured bluebird—or a hummingbird, swift, or phoebe. Each of the twenty five chapters covers a different species, and many depict an individual bird, each with its own personality, habits, and quirks. And each chapter is illustrated with Zickefoose's stunning watercolor paintings and drawings. Not just individual tales about the trials and triumphs of raising birds,The Bluebird Effect mixes humor, natural history, and memoir to give readers an intimate story of a life lived among wild birds.
