Such a lovely read. I so enjoyed this book as I learned a lot about birds, their characteristics, and habitats, in an easy, delightful way. Biologist Richard Cannings describes his encounters with birds from when he was a child to today--not in a dry, scientific manner, but rather in a poetic, vivid style that gives the reader the feeling that his experiences with birds are joyous, sentient and emotional.
