Celeste 08/16/10 06:59 pm If it wasn't for you posting I would never read this blog and I'm always glad that you do "remind" me. It's always a pleasant read.:-)
Shelley 08/16/10 09:08 pm Marty, this was great. Since I can't comment on the blog directly, I will mention here a book I read not long ago, called *Corvus - A Life With Birds* by Esther Woolfson. She is a woman in Scotland who raised a crow and raven in her home, not deliberately but rather, they somehow ended up with her one way or another. It was one of the most fascinating bird books I have read in a long time. I may have mentioned it here shortly after I read it but it was wonderful. Lots of photos and really, really well-written, on both an emotional level as well as a scientific level. I learned so much! I thought I'd mention it again in case you wanted to mention that on the Dawn Chorus board given the topic this time. I highly recommend it.

Thanks, as always, for the link.
martyc35 08/17/10 01:26 pm I forwarded your recommendation to the group, Shelley. I hope some will pick up on it.

Pamela 08/17/10 10:43 pm I'll second Shelley's recommendation of Woolfson's book, CORVUS: A LIFE WITH BIRDS. It was refreshing to read a book about birds not written by an ornithologist, but a mother who had studied Chinese and threw out a welcome mat to nature. Folklore, history, and scientific facts are woven into Woolfson's personal observations of Chicken, Bardie, Spike and Ziki.
My copy, however, does not have photographs, but exceptional illustrations by Helen Macdonald.
