"Kate Davis knows birds, and itís a riot to see that someone as knowledgeable and talented as Kate canít help but anthropomorphize the behaviors of these beautiful and wondrous creatures.
 "This book is a reminder of the beauty of the world, and that we have a kinship with all living things. Our ability to laugh at our condition is what makes us, and our avian friends, special. And hilarious."
óBILL HARLEY, Grammy Award-winning storyteller, singer, author

When you see a bird diving for a fish, landing on a perch, or singing from a fence post, do you wonder what itís saying or thinking? While staking out nests or waiting for the perfect shot on cold mornings, photographer Kate Davis has wondered plenty. In Birds Are People, Too, she lets her imagination fly with humorous takes on the avian world, from young owls pondering if their parents will really kick them out of the nest to a sleepy robin that awoke too late to get the worm. Youíll be entertained and amazed by this extraordinary collection of more than 100 never-before-published action photos of 62 bird species.
