Machmiller and Martha Dahlen.  The three have worked together on two previous books and in their third collaboration they focus on common backyard birds.  Through poetry and painting the three artists present a fresh perspective on our familiar, often overlooked, ‘ordinary’ birds.

“We are walking toward the Loretto Chapel in December. There had been a snow storm the day before that had turned the city to magic.”
