“Once in a great while a natural history book changes the way people look at the world In 1838 John ames Audubon’s Birds of America was oneIn 1934 Roger Tory Peterson produced Field Guide to the BirdsNow comes The Sibley Guide to Birds”Thus did The New York Times in 1999 greet David Allen Sibley’s monumental book which has uickly been established nationwide as the peerless standard bird identification guide The Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior is the new landmark book from David Allen Sibley Designed This book is a collection of stories mythology poems and illustrations all about birds Some were entertaining; some were sad in describing man's cruelty to these creatures the closest to angels on earth I was shocked to learn that James Audubon killed thousands of birds in order to get just the right poses for his drawings This was before photography and high resolution binoculars provided a humane methodOther entries were too long or not of interest to me so I did not feel guilty to flit through the pages I think it was a bit heavy to be a bedside book as it was hard to hold up when slightly reclined and dozing off allowing gravity to make a literal connection with my headGraeme's introductions at each chapter's beginning were insightful and entertaining as well I laughed at the rooster entries and shared some with co workers in the poultry related field I was inspired by his description of bird watching At its heightened moments birdwatching can encourage a state of being close to rapture It is an ecstasy that is said to accompany the writing of poetry; sometimes it comes when we’re listening to music
