Interesting

This book is one of those books that you assume to be about one thing, but it turns out to be something completely different. Ruth Finnegan puts a lot of love into remembering her grandfather’s David Campbell Callender’s lifelong passion – birds.

The book paints an interesting parallel between birds and humans strongly suggesting the superiority of the flying creatures.

It is a rather short book, therefore do not expect to get an encyclopaedia-worth of bird knowledge. Peaceful Grace Winpenny’s narration combined with amusing intakes on bird life, make this book perfect for listening to it somewhere while being in nature.

I believe everyone should spare themselves to have an opportunity to enter a meditative-like state and reunite themselves with nature and I think this book is great for this occasion.

This is indeed a very warm book and everything about it screams ‘Love’. To nature, to gracious creatures of the sky but most importantly love to the beloved grandfather.

Bird insight unlike any other

For readers who are interested in the lives and activities of birds, Birds, Who Are They? by David Cambell Callender is a great choice. Learning where birds come from, what their purpose is, and how different humans are from this species are all included in this audiobook. The audience is taught so many amazing and interesting facts that they never knew about. And it causes them to grow a new fondness for birds, it’s amazing!

Along with the information that I was already curious about, I learned a ton of other great information about birds. Bird watching has always been an interest of mine, but after hearing about the similarities and differences between birds and humans, I can definitely say that I will see them a bit differently in the future. They’re beautiful, majestic, and truly magical animals that everyone should learn to appreciate. The audiobook is calming and relaxing, so it makes listening much easier. Everything is easy to understand, and the topics aren’t difficult to grasp, it’s the perfect book for any reader.

Captivating

Birds, Who Are They? is a very captivating audiobook by David Campbell Callender. It provides so much detailed and very important information about birds and how they thrive on this planet. The audience learns about the bond between humans and birds that is key for the Earth to spin. It’s amazing how truly majestic birds are!

The narration is really clear and enjoyable which makes everything so much easier to listen to and understand. Birds are very interesting and there are many species, but the author points out that he wouldn’t stick to names and terminologies. This makes everything easy to grasp and pay attention to. Now, it’s the information that pertains to all birds, instead of certain species. Listening to this audio book was both pleasant and relaxing, I would certainly recommend it!
