Last week Zickefoose spoke with WYSO's Jerry Kenney about her appearance at Glen Helen, her love of nature, home life, and more.

About Julie's new book - The Bluebird Effect: Uncommon Bonds with Common Birds is about what happens when, by virtue of having helped one or raised one, you are taken for a few magic days, weeks, or months into a wild bird's confidence. You never know how or when that might happen. The book has grown from forty years of working with, studying, drawing and helping birds; trying to fix them when they're broken and mothering them when they're orphaned.
