This collection of short poems from Newbery Award–winning author Paul Fleischman delightfully celebrates the essence of birds. The companion to Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices, its poems feature two voices speaking sometimes together and sometimes in turn. Experience the magic and magnificence of the immortal phoenix. Enjoy the fluttering elation of finches at dawn and the swiftness of swallows at dusk. And empathize with the loneliness of the last passenger pigeon in the Cincinnati Zoo.

The musical voices of five excellent narrators perform these poems in harmonies and cadences as pleasing as birdsong. Their voices capture the melodic, rejoicing, soaring freedom of the beautiful aviary kingdom and, occasionally, its loneliness and despair at being exploited by the human race.
