The Magic of Birds (4 stars)
I've always had a strange connection to certain animals but none more so than birds. They've always played a mysterious role in my life. From rescuing baby birds and holding funerals for those found mauled by cats to unusual sightings, they just can't seem to stop passing through my life. So I picked up Bird Magic hoping to gain some insight into their presence.
I found Bird Magic to be an interesting, unexpected resource. I'm neither pagan nor Wiccan, though both speak to me spiritually, but I found it a very useful book anyway.
If you find yourself frequently visited by blackbirds, ravens, owls, and birds of prey as I am I think you'll really enjoy this book.
