portrait of John Muir, conservationist, naturalist, writer,
The Hummingbird of the California Waterfalls
by John Muir.
Reprinted from 1878. This has been called "the finest bird biography ever
written". Muir's "waterfall hummingbird" is the water-ouzel, of course, now
also called the dipper. Although Muir buffs and birders already know this, even they will
enjoy reading or re-reading the story of this little bobber. Some might have seen this
little bird, but without this article have not yet enjoyed the flyer/swimmer fully. As
Muir's portrayal shows, much of the bird's intrigue is its physical elusiveness while
remaining visually accessible. Enjoy this little story and enjoy this little bird.
Foreword by former Chief Park Naturalist, Yosemite National Park. Period illustrations. 24 pages.
