Freedom is for the Birds by JM Sutherland is about a group of hawks with anthropomorphic qualities, i.e. they speak like humans and have human emotions. This book is a bird infused fantasy and follows a pair of hawks, K'Lar and D'Ree on their migration to find and repair their old nest. As the book progresses, we begin to understand the society and culture of hawks, their respect for Mother Nature, themselves, and others. There are a lot of comparisons between humans and hawks, and the hawks ...more

Freedom is for the Birds by JM Sutherland follows a cast of red tail hawks through the trials of migration returning from their winter vacation. What stress could ensue? For an animal fiction novel, this one is pretty good. It depicts the fears and concerns of the Hawks to that of concerns of humans. Similar yes, but apparently more natural. No money, no traffic, no waging political conflicts with friends on social media. Simply, finding their old nest to rebuild for the additions to their ...more

After reading this, I can see why it's only an ebook, doubt if a publisher would want to put this one in their catalog! Worst book I've read this year, stilted dialog and heavy handed lecturing from an author who is either an atheist or new age idiot. Do not bother reading this book, it's a complete waste of your time.

This is a wonderful story. Many aspects of it more than deserve five stars. However, I find other aspects wanting. In part, this is personal taste, and others may disagree with me. Here are my problem issues:
The book reminds me of the “Celestine Prophecy,” which was a best-seller -- but I was unable to complete reading it. Both books lecture at the reader. Actually, this delightful story is a lot easier to read then the “Celestine Prophecy,” but I don’t like being lectured at, however delightful

What a wonderful book! Although speaking animals usually populate the land of children's books, this book is appealing to all ages, from pre-teen to adult. It is the story of a family of Red-Tailed Hawks, led by a couple named K'Lar and D'ree. They are first seen as they complete the long migration back to Canada from their summer home in Mexico. They want to find their old nest, repair it and get settled in before D'ree is ready to lay her eggs.When they arrive, however, they are met with a ...more

K’Lar and D’Ree are red-tailed hawks who have recently migrated back to Alberta, Canada from Southern Mexico for the summer. They need to find and repair their old nest so D’Ree can lay her clutch of eggs.

They fly through a city filled with noise and pollution. When they finally arrive at their valley home, all the trees are gone leaving their hunting field a swath of mud encircled by homes under construction.

Incredulous that the humans violated their own law by destroying a hawk habitat, the
