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.
