5.0 out of 5 stars A Compassionate look into the Lives of Birds, January 27, 2012
This review is from: The Bluebird Effect: Uncommon Bonds with Common Birds (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What I absolutely love about this book is that it is written like a personal and heartfelt journal about the author's experiences with birds that she has rehabilitated and/or had other personal experiences with. This book has interesting facts about the birds along with details on their individual personalities. This isn't the standard and straightlaced ornithology book.

The author had long dreamed of being an Ornithologist, but couldn't get into the college she had dreamed of because of her math scores on the SAT. She turns this failure into a success as she gets to take an even more hands on approach working with birds, getting to the real and the personal side of birds. She describes her emotional bonds with the birds and documents how each of her birds is different in their personalities. I found it very touching and something most anyone would relate to.

This is really a beautiful book from the cover art throughout. It contains gorgeous drawings that the author drew of her inspirations, the birds in her care. It also includes interesting side notes that she kept on most of her willing subjects.

If you love birds or love reading about them, I'd highly suggest getting this book. This book is one I will treasure in my library for a long, long time.
