She Heard the Birds: The Story of Florence Merriam Bailey

Meet Florence Merriam Bailey, a pioneering birder and activist who changed the way we study birds forever! As a young girl, Bailey fell in love with the outdoors, especially birds, whose songs and flight captivated her. She listened, waited, and watched to better understand her feathered friends, and wrote many books, including one of the first field guides to American birds. Her work ultimately led to better protection for birds and to the scientific study of birds in nature instead of in a lab.

She Heard the Birds, the latest book from Andrea D'Aquino, author of A Life Made by Hand: The Story of Ruth Asawa, brings to life the story of a woman ahead of her time. D'Aquino captures Bailey's love of her feathered friends, with both her text and the striking full-page collages. This is a gorgeous tribute to a pioneering scientist whose innovative perspective allowed us to understand our world a little better — and protected millions of birds.
