Birdly Ways

Birds of the Bible

by Tara Hall

Twenty eight birds are mentioned in the Bible. They still fly across the world today. Children can see them presented in their natural habitat and a special trait that is unique to each bird. These traits are positive character affirmations to pique a child's interest in learning more about these beautiful creatures. Each bird is painted in gouache (similar to watercolor) in their natural surroundings.
Presenting the 28+ birds that have been recorded in history over two thousand years, Birdly Ways offers a glimpse into the beauty of these feathered friends. An affirming character trait is listed for each bird with a short fact about each bird at the end of the book. The generosity of talented photographers allowing the use of their photos to be used as references endeared a great inspiration. Seeing these birds in action will spur further discovery. Please find their websites listed at the back of the book in the acknowledgment page. Growing the love of nature and creation with our youth will help sustain the conservation and success of these birds moving forward. Sharing the positive attributes each bird possesses hopefully will encourage each child to learn more.
About the author
Funny how one word can pull you in a new direction- Grammy. Our first grandchild was born this year (2023) and when your heart grows- so do your intentions. To honor the goodness she brought into our family, I wanted to create content that affirms positive traits and the first is a presentation of fascinating birds found in the Bible. These birds represent diversity, perseverance, creation, and wonder. We can learn something from each one. While this book only focuses on one central trait, the hope is it will spur an interest in birds that will spawn more exploration. Encouraging the next generation to seek ways to be good stewards of our lands and resources is one of my shifts in directions. That starts through a love and interest for the creation around us. I chose to explore the birds of the Bible because of my love for history and truth, I found it very interesting looking at these birds who have been recorded for thousands of years still flying in my own backyard. My personal background was a career in pharmaceuticals, homeschooling our three children, teaching writing classes to homeschoolers and all done while living in 6 states over 35 years. My interests are gardening (bringing food sources for honey bees, birds, and butterflies), hitting the local trails with our rescue dogs, travel and dreaming up the next creation to inspire the next generation. I hope that this and future books will encourage everyone to tap into their creative side and create something that can inspire others.
