On Duck Pond

Second of the series for Cornell Lab of Ornithology,a rhymed picture book with marvelous pictures by Bob Marstall, my friend of 40 years and an Orbis Pictus award-winning illustrator. This one is set at a New England pond where the quiet of the day is broken by a raucous flock of ducks. Great back-matter by the scientists at the Lab.
