Here at Casa Feathers n Beak, reading is a flock-wide tradition.
While some of us like to focus on the words on the page, while others of us prefer to focus on the crispiness of those pages, it is safe to say no book entering this household lacks for attention.
So Pearl thought it would be a great idea to combine his literary knowledge with his mommy’s typing skills to offer a “book o’ the week” review – just in time for your weekend reading list!
This week, the book is “Of a Feather: A Brief History of American Birding” by Scott Weidensaul.
Pearl’s review: It doesn’t surprise me that the whole book focuses on featherless beings staring at feathered beings, on account of how cute we are. It is also good that the parrot is highlighted. The parts where feathered beings are featured in recipes did not add to the text at all. For a better recipe and a more parrot-centric storyline, I highly recommend this book instead!
His mommy’s review: As it turns out, many of America’s first birding enthusiasts were, well, criminals. Or at least “individuals with shady pasts.” Yet somehow, maybe because of or even in spite of them, bird watching has evolved into one part national pastime and one part avian conservation effort, which is all parts beneficial for birds. I really enjoyed this book. 🙂
With love (& feathers),
