Its curiosity, friendliness, bravery, and acrobatic antics have long made the black- capped chickadee a favorite of bird watchers of all ages. Oh, Chickadee presents a year in the life of a chickadee, answering such questions as, Where do they nest? How do they protect themselves from predators? and How do they survive the frigid winter? This informative book, written by award-winning author Jennifer Richard Jacobson and illustrated in vibrant chalk pastel and charcoal pencil by celebrated illustrator Jamie Hogan, brings the more hidden world of these endearing birds into view.
