Linda Johns shares her woodland home with a changing flock of injured wild birds. Trees in the indoor garden provide perches. A screened porch is a practice flyway for convalescents. Edna the rabbit and Blossom, the media-savvy hen, offer comic relief. With exuberant joy, Birds of a Feather tells about the many birds Linda Johns releases back into the wild and the few who move in to stay. Enhanced by her drawings of many avian housemates, this charming book is a must-read for all wildlife lovers. Linda Johns won the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction for Sharing a Robin’s Life. A renowned artist who draws inspiration from the natural world, she is the author of five books about living with wild birds and animals and several limited edition art books. In her rural Nova Scotia studio, she has had to get used to working with a pigeon on her arm, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Like James Herriot and Farley Mowat, Johns writes
with a vigour and perception that make the personalities of animals as vivid
