Birds accompany us daily in our backyards and neighborhoods with their songs, bright colors, and energetic activity. Even people who don’t consider themselves “birders” seek them out—from urban wetlands to wilderness trails, we follow the sound of a distant twitter or song.

Join us on Tuesday October 29th as Molly discusses the inspiration and process of her newest book Birds of the West. Following her presentation will be a Q&A and book signing.

Books will be available at the Nature Store before and after the event.

About the book:

In Birds of the West, award-winning artist Molly Hashimoto captures nearly 100 Western bird species across seven habitats using different media, from quick ink sketches to vivid block prints. From the diminutive ruby-crowned kinglet to the majestic golden eagle, Molly’s range of art and detail encourages all of us, whether artists or not, to observe our feathered friends more closely.

About the author:

Seattle resident Molly Hashimoto leads plein air watercolor painting and printmaking workshops at the North Cascades Institute, Yellowstone Forever Institute, Wenatchee River Institute, and Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. Her artwork is widely published in cards, calendars, books, and journals, and she is the author of Colors of the West. Learn more at
