Description - Windcatcher: Migration of the Short-tailed Shearwater by Diane Jackson Hill

*A CBCA 2020 Notable Book of the Year: Picture Book*

Age range 3 to 9

A short-tailed shearwater flies from the edge of the Southern Ocean to the rim of the Arctic Circle - and back - every year. This remarkable 30,000 kilometre journey is driven by seabird law.

Instinct and community will guide her. A wingspan the size of a child's outstretched arms will support her.

But first, she must catch the wind...

Based on birds that live on Griffith Island, near Port Fairy, Victoria, Windcatcher is a tale of migration, conservation and survival that begins with one small bird called Hope.
