Read from September 26 to October 05, 2011

A really fun read! Informative and entertaining. Sy Montgomery writes about birds as the modern-day descendants of dinosaurs, relying on recent research and meeting quite a cast of characters in the process. Each section was a revelation - I especially enjoyed learning about hummingbird rehabilitation, falconry, and racing pigeons; and I've always thought cassowaries were cool. Shortly after I read the chapter on chickens, my family and I went on an "urban coop tour" here in Atlanta, and we are actually considering raising a couple of hens next spring. Definitely a book worth reading.
