Format: Hardcover
I enjoy the pictures in this book until March 14 whereby a dead owl pinned to the wooden wall is presented. The description mentioned about the sadness in the barn owl being one of the most frequent victims of highway traffic. I felt that the picture does not relate to the text, even if it does relate, I find it difficult to accept such a presentation. Would the author consider replacing it with a picture of an alive Barn Owl?

I received this book as a gift and as a bird lover and owner, I was very pleased. Some of the pictures are outstanding, most are very nice, but when I came to one of my favorites, the barn owl, I was horrified. The bird is depicted nailed to a barn wall in an avian crucifixion. I sent an outraged e-mail to the publisher who graciously promised to change the picture in the next edition. But how could the other reviewers not have reacted, as I did, to this offensive picture?

First let me say that the quality of this hardcover book is excellent and, for the most part, the photos are of good to excellent quality with a few minor exceptions. The book provides short vignettes descriptive of the bird selected to represent that calendar day. But... the descriptions are very definitely from a French man's perspective. His descriptions of birds that are found only in the Americas are somewhat thin and lack the same "up close and personal" feel of his descriptions of birds he encounters regularly in *his* world.

For example: on the page "August 5" he writes about the *Alder Flycatcher* which is one of 37 species of flycatchers and related species that are found in North America. He says: "Every continent has its nightmare birds -- that is, birds that are a nightmare to identify. In North America, the flycatchers are at the top of the pack. What is challenging for the American ornithologists is a nearly impossible feat for ornithologists from elsewhere who lack the same experience over the years." He says that the flycatchers of North America have "drab and similar plumage" and describes how difficult it is to pick up the slight visual variations that help to identify different species of flycatchers. He then presents a lovely photo of a charming alder flycatcher that catches an impressive amount of detail and even hints at the pugnacious nature of this particular bird. He does not spend any time discussing the amazing repertoire of songs these little mites have developed to differentiate themselves; nor does he mention the reams of research that has been done on the songs of these "plain little birds.

I am an avid bird lover. This was an absolutely wonder addition to my collection. It is packed with beautiful photos of birds, some that I have never even seen before.
