A girl and her grandfather go bird watching in the park with the goal of finding a robin redbreast. Luckily, when it comes to birds, her Grandpa knows just what to look and listen for--from shapes of beaks to squawks and squeaks. But while the robin proves to be elusive, other birds are discovered in trees, in bushes, on lamp posts, power lines, and rooftops--which the reader discovers by lifting the gatefolds. Finally, when spotting a nest with blue eggs, a mama robin swoops in to cap off the day and delight the tenacious birdwatchers. The book ends with a dramatic foldout showing all of the birds described previously.
