"The only road to Magdalena, New Mexico, runs straight as a string through the high desert grasslands. This lonely gate punctuated the vastness, as perfect in its place as a bleached skull hung upon a wall. The scene needed nothing more--until a small band of mountain bluebirds materialized from the weathered fence posts and limitless sky. They were the first I'd ever seen, and painting them was a way of reliving that magical encounter."

Julie Zickefoose is an accomplished artist, naturalist, writer, and songbird rehabilitator originally from East Haddam, Connecticut. She sketches birds and animals directly from life. Julie has contributed artwork and writing to Bird Watcher's Digest since 1986. She lives on a farm in Whipple, Ohio, with her husband Bill Thompson, III, and her two children.
