Wonderful bird book

Post by ann » Fri Jun 30, 2017 5:36 pm

Shopping in Costco last week I found a fabulous book - The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman. It's mostly about birds in the wild but she does talk about finches and caged birds. I think most of us who have birds know that they are smarter than given credit for, but this book explains just how remarkable they are. Anyone who loves birds will love this book. It is in paperback, and at Costco it's $9.99.

ann - Hi Ann, thanks for letting us know. I'll have to check it out in the next few days. Was there last week but just to pick up a big chocolate cake for my husband's B-day party. Was running around like a headless chicken trying to get everything done. Life has returned to 'normal' (whatever that is).

Thank you very much for the recommendation! Added it to my wishlist on Amazon. It's a little bit pricier than you found it for at Costco ($11.59), but sounds worth it!
