A boy and his mom continue the family tradition of participating in the
annual bird count. Since Gramps went South for the winter, the boy hopes
to spot Gramps's favorite bird for him—a dove! But with so many
different birds in the nature preserve, will he be able to spot one?
This heart-warming family story about nature celebrates a holiday census
that was first started in 1900 and happens every year.
