Windcatcher: Migration of the Short-Tailed Shearwater (HB)

Author(s): Diane Jackson Hill; Craig Smith (Illustrator)

Picture Books

 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.
