There is a long list of articles and books on how to feed birds in your yard. So, I was happy to see the publication of a book on all aspects of wild bird feeding—history, culture, and economics. It is a serious book with a friendly attitude. The authors’ interest expanded into this book, published by Texas A&M University Press. Julie actually is cited in the book for her wonderful Zick Dough, but there is so much more to say.)

It’s time for some short book reviews. Two books are part of series I’ve reviewed previously (and you may want to reread those posts for more detailed info), one is a handbook that I’ve been wanting to review for a long time, but thought that a shorter piece would work better than the long ones I always seem to end up doing here. This is probably explained in Howell’s book, The Amazing World of Flying Fish, and I am guessing these fish only had scientific names previously.
