Why Don’t Woodpeckers Get Headaches? (And other questions you know you want to ask), is a hilarious compilation of newspaper column questions and answers from Cape Cod birder Mike O’Connor. A perennial Audubon Shop top seller. An easy and fun distraction and read, but it is full of wisdom, too. Second in this series is “Why Do Bluebirds Hate Me?”
- Are flamingos really real?
- Should I bring in my feeders for the summer?”
- Why are the birds dropping poop in my pool?”
Answering the questions has been easy; keeping a straight face has been hard.
Why Don’t Woodpeckers Get Headaches? is the solution for the beginning birder who already has a book that explains the slight variation between Common Ground-Doves and Ruddy Ground-Doves but who is really much more interested in why birds sing at 4:30 A.M. instead of 7:00 A.M., or whether it’s okay to feed bread to birds, or how birds rediscover your feeders so quickly when you’ve just filled them after a long vacation. Or, for that matter, whether flamingos are really real.
*Review: “Mike O’Connor knows birds—I mean, REALLY knows them. He can deliver the straight scoop with a hilarious twist that makes it unforgettable. Reading this book is almost as much fun as bird watching, and that’s saying a lot!”—Kenn Kaufman, author of the Kaufman Field Guide to the Birds of North America
