Stories and Advice About Our Feathered Friends, at Home

By Marty Becker, DVM

Written by “America’s Veterinarian” Marty Becker, this is a fun yet educational book for anyone who enjoys birds, wild or domestic. Dr. Becker is featured on Good Morning America, the Dr. Oz Show, and PBS. He knows birds.

The book is written in sections. He offers stories about wild birds in our backyards, companion bird stories, bird rescue stories, and teaches about lessons we can learn from them all.

The stories in this book entertain, but more importantly have an educational value and purpose. We learn how to care for wild birds, including creating a proper environment and feeding of them. Dr. Becker also teaches us how to choose the appropriate companion bird, and then how to create a healthy and long life for it.

All of the stories are interesting and well written, making for a very enjoyable book. The photographs are amazing and helpful in identification of birds and species. It is a thorough yet readable book for any age, youth through adult.


  1. It sounds lovely...I love feeding wild birds and squirrels...right now there are two turkey vultures munching on seed...I hope!!!

  2. I agree with Patty (replace the turkey vultures with chickadees and the seed with insects on our old plum tree). I've done wildlife rescue with a variety of birds and also done a bit of domesticated bird rescue too, so these stories would hit close to the heart. Off to see if I can find this at the library...
