Pamela 03/27/10 02:02 pm There is a wonderful old book still available for young children titled THE BURGESS BIRD BOOK FOR CHILDREN by Thornton W. Burgess. The author through his appealing stories introduces youngsters to birds and conservation in such an appealing way.
Peter Rabbit has discussions with myriad birds discovering their behavior which includes their appearances, eating and nesting habits.
One day Peter, who had learned through experience to crouch in a hiding place for safety whenever a hook-clawed, hook-billed bird flew over him, described Plunger the Osprey catching a fish after three tries and then seeing King Eagle (who isn't kingly in his habits) steal it from him. The story goes on to say the eagle isn't a very good fisherman and isn't fussy about his fish as he doesn't care how long they have been dead. In fact, Jenny Wren tells Peter he'd best be careful as the King is fond of fresh meat and even Honker the Goose had best beware. The one good thing about the white headed old robber is that he is loyal and true to his mate which he takes for life.
Tiger, your previous question prompted me to go and find this wonderful story--perfect timing!
Celeste 03/27/10 02:27 pm What a nice book! Wish I had known about it when I had little ones:-)
Marie 03/27/10 04:54 pm I must seek that book for my 2 grandchildren...
