Look Up! Bird-Watching in Your Own Back Yard
by Annette LeBlanc Cate
Birding is an inexpensive and fun hobby you can do anywhere, even in your own backyard.  All you have to do is LOOK UP because birds are everywhere.  Cate provides a enthusiastic introduction to ornithology that only requires a little curiosity, some careful observation and a good sense-of humor!  

Wing Nut by M.J. Auch  
 A heartwarming  and hopeful story of twelve-year-old Grady Flood and his mother, Lila.  When they have to relocate yet again, Lila takes a job taking care of elderly and slightly eccentric Charlie Fernwald.  Charlie is a farmer, a mechanic and a birder who loves purple martins. The question is: can Grady and Charlie find their way to friendship?  Or is friendship something Grady even wants?
