  1. My husband got me a copy of this new book as an early Mother’s Day (quarantine) present. I LOVE it! Beautifully illustrated, of course, beautifully written, of course, and a wondrous view into what it is like to be a bird (a delightful surprise). My whole family (two teens and my husband) are completely taken with learning things like: that birds have two places they balance from and sleep with their feet relaxed, that 30% of the female mallards die while incubating their eggs, that birds will eat paint chips to get enough calcium and that birds are constantly deciding what to do. We had a wonderful conversation about instincts vs decision-making. Thank you David for sharing your brilliance with our family and inspiring us to watch and observe even more carefully and for giving us new tools and information that allows us to be more discerning in what we see and notice as well.
