About this book

When you see a bird diving for a fish, landing on a perch, or singing from a fence post, do you ever wonder what it is saying or thinking? While staking out nests and waiting in the cold morning for the perfect shot, photographer Kate Davis has wondered plenty. Here she offers up some humorous takes on the avian world, from young owls pondering if their parents really mean to kick them out of the nest to a sleepy robin that got up too late in the morning to get the worm. The captions will leave you chuckling, but this collection of more than 100 never-before-published photos of 62 species of birds is amazing for its action shots alone. An appendix informs readers what the birds in the photos are actually doing.

Biography

Surrounded by birds for the last 30 years, Kate Davis lives in an avian world. She founded the nonprofit education program Raptors of the Rockies in 1988 and keeps over a dozen birds of prey at facilities at her home in western Montana. In this, her sixth book, she presents a different slant on a bird guide: a humorous and human look at our avian neighbors. Kate is a photography fanatic. For months out of the year she spends most evenings along the river behind her house, a bird mecca. Kate's motto: Always have your camera ready. You never know what might fly by.

Media reviews

"Kate Davis knows birds, and it s a riot to see that someone as knowledgeable and talented as Kate can t help but anthropomorphize the behaviors of these beautiful and wondrous creatures. This book is a reminder of the beauty of the world, and that we have a kinship with all living things. Our ability to laugh at our condition is what makes us, and our avian friends, special. And hilarious."
– Bill Harley, Grammy Award-winning storyteller, singer, author
