But there was lots of informative ( and silly) trivia. So this book probably does offer something for anyone with any interest in birds. There are also silly children's jokes. This would be a nice book for older children.
I will keep this one for myself, it will be great for killing time at the airport, etc.. But I like it enough to buy a couple more copies for members of my bird loving family. A great stocking stuffer!
I come from a family of bird lovers, and my husband loves all nature; birds in particular. This book, Bird Brain Teasers, by Patrick Merrell, is so good humored and informative concerning birds, that neither of us can believe there is so much information packed into such a handy pocket sized tome. Funnily enough, it is just the size of a bird watcher's guide. Intentional? I think so!
There are puzzles and quizzes, facts and information galore. Beatles fans: did you know that the song "Blackbird" features around ten seconds of a real blackbird singing...from an album of sound effects, "Volume Seven: Birds of a Feather"? Neat!
Some people don't know much about birds, but like them. Some people know a lot about them; love feeding them, and watching them.
This book is great for both kinds of bird-heads... it would make a wonderful gift! It encourages us, in a lighthearted way, to derive more entertainment from these sweet little creatures, and that, as they say, is "a good thing"!
