Many familiar birds are depicted in this collection of poems, as well as some that the average person may not recognize. They possess some interesting traits that caught the authoras attention, and they have interesting stories to tell. The collection ends with a question: can they fly away again? Humanity is crowding the earth and changing the world with our needs and activities a often not for the best. Birds need space to live, eat, and raise their young, too. They can no longer fly away from the extinction we are bringing. Can we learn to share Spaceship Earth with these remarkable, feathered dinosaurs, the birds?
