Out of the Nest: A Story of a Fieldfare

Text by Alexandra Smirnova and Diana Yanbarisova, illustrated by Olesya Gonserovskaya

Have you ever found a baby bird on the ground? Was your first thought to come help it? Don`t you hurry! Keep calm and read this story.

A baby fieldfare named Kira is quite curious. Following a beautiful butterfly, Kira falls out of her nest. Is that dangerous?! Yes and no. Without falling out of the nest, a fieldfare won’t learn how to fly, eat and protect itself. The forest floor is a new and unknown world for Kira. We follow her and her new friend – a witty and forward-thinking lizard – as Kira starts exploring it. Scientific commentary will help us learn many interesting facts about fledglings, fieldfares, forest life and even humans visiting the forest.
