Summary
As a boy, John James Audubon loved to watch birds. In 1804, at the age of eighteen, he moved from his home in France to Pennsylvania. There he took a particular interest in peewee flycatchers. While observing these birds, John James became determined to answer a pair of two-thousand-year-old questions: Where do small birds go in the winter, and do they return to the same nest in the spring?
Summary
John James Audubon's passion for the outdoors in general and for birds specifically inspires an account of Audubon's early observations of birds nesting near his Pennsylvania boyhood home
