Dance of the Hummingbird Field Guide

Dance of the Hummingbird Field Guide


This handmade book is a unique one of a kind treasure. It was made by me and is from a small collection of handmade field guides that I made during a summer of mindful observations. Now, it is available for purchase and would make a truly heartfelt gift for yourself or any bird and nature lover.

It serves as a poetic field guide for How to Witness a Hummingbird. It includes poetic verse and a series of photographs taken while observing the dance of a hummingbird to and from the feeder.

The book measures 6 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches. It is covered with a decorated paper and bound with a rubber band and twig binding. The inside pages include handmade paper, grid and speckled paper with text and photos and a pocket on the inside cover to hold small discoveries or notes. There are some running thread stitches throughout the book, tracing the movement of a hummingbird in flight.

The book comes with a tiny handmade flip book made from a series of photos, showing a hummingbird’s movement to the feeder. The flip book nestles between two elastic bands on the front of the book for easy removal and storage.
