I don't do much reading--really, not much is written for us birds. But The Mincing Mockingbird's Guide to Troubled Birds is great. As it says on the title page, it's "an authoritative illustrated compendium to be consulted in the event of an infant or small child being torn apart by a murder of crows." And at only 64 pages, it's easy for me to carry from tree to tree. Of course, my chickadee friends would have some trouble picking it up, but they're not into dark humor anyway.
