My Yard Birds is a neatly written, wonderfully illustrated collection of poems by Rhinelander author Barb Schmeling. Living along the banks of the Pelican River in northern Wisconsin, Schmeling has always been fascinated by the variety of wildlife that calls her backyard a temporary home, in particular the wide variety of birds. In My Yard Birds, she offers a striking collection of verse and illustrations about some of those visitors. Win Press Publishing. Softcover, 40 pages, 5.5 x 8.5 inches.
