    One thought on “Our Garden Birds”

    1. A very quirky, but sweet, little book, with beautiful watercolor illustrations. "Waxwings blow my mind. I've always been skeptical whether these birds exist or not. They're like a computer-generated samurai finch designed by a norse god. Those little red waxy droplets are amazingly improbable; their faded colourway , menacing headwear and dark warpaint are, surely, too bewilderingly accomplished to be the product of evolution.""Poor old Dunnock. You never hear anybody saying, 'Oh, I saw a lovely [...]

    2. After having read two other books by this author I was pumped into getting this book even though I know that the birds found within would be your garden birds of the United Kingdom. Although I have a love for animals and do really enjoy birds, many birding books that I have read were local North American birds or really tropical species that influence any person into animals while the more drab locals are ignored when compared to these exotic beauties.Although I have loved the other books that I [...]

    3. Delightful! The House Sparrow "looking like an old RAF Squadron Leader in a flat cap and tweed"; the Waxwing as "a computer-generated samurai finch". Illustrations every bit as charming.

    4. Beautiful illustrations with quirky descriptions. At the back there's a checklist so you can record which of Sewell's characters you've seen in your own garden.

    5. An exquisite find at the library, this book was a delightful companion to dip in and out of throughout the last month or so. I had not heard of some of the birds in this book, such as the Yellowhammer, Hoopoe, Blackcap and Mistle Thrush, but each friendly little bird is introduced with a gorgeous watercolour picture and a couple of paragraphs about their behaviour and appearance. The book does focus on the garden birds of the United Kingdom so it may not be as useful for readers in other countri [...]

    6. This is such a little jewel of a book that our daughter-in-law gave to us when we visited at Christmas. Unusual in it's illustrations and content, it is so very charming!
