This intriguing book about bird feeding

...came in the mail today. Feeding Wild Birds in America: Culture, Commerce & Conservation (Texas A&M University Press, 2015) appears to be a multifaceted history of bird feeding from the late 1800s to the present day. I can already tell I will learn a great deal.


It's especially wonderful to see Harvey's photo of the Rustic Bunting in this book. Behind the book is the place where the bunting seemed most comfortable during its stay in our yard. It seems so long ago, but I still look for it every time I look out the window.
