*Litchfield Hills Audubon Society and The White Memorial Conservation
Center are bringing acclaimed Artist, Author, and Naturalist Julie
Zickefoose to Litchfield, December 3, 2016 for an afternoon of musings and
mechanics of how her phenomenal book, Baby Birds: An Artist Looks Into the
Nest, was conceived and created.  *

In 2002, Julie Zickefoose began to draw and paint wild nestlings day by
day, bearing witness to their swift growth. Over the next 13 years, Julie
would document the daily changes in 17 bird species from hatching to
fledging. *Baby Birds *is the enchanting result, with more than 500 life
studies that hop, crawl and flutter through its pages. In this talk, Julie
shares her influences as well as her artistic process, a must-see for the
aspiring natural history artist. Art and science blend in every Zickefoose
pursuit, as the scientist’s relentless curiosity joins the artist’s quest
for beauty. The work, wonder and fun of studying nestlings, including being
foster mother to orphaned hummingbirds, chimney swifts and bluebirds, makes
for an irresistible and highly inspirational presentation.

Details: Presentation at 3:00 P.M. in the Carriage House at White Memorial
Foundation, 80 Whitehall Rd., Litchfield, CT. Reception and book signing to
follow in the Nature Museum across the street. Litchfield Hills Audubon
Society and White Memorial Conservation Center Members are FREE. All others
