Simon Selwood is an academic expert on the monogamous sexual behaviour of birds, but hopeless at finding human love. Then he meets Kim, and at last something is more important to him than ornithology.

Kim doesn’t give a hoot about birds. And at first she isn’t very interested in Simon either. Relying on what he has gleaned from observing the opportunistic pied flycatcher and other species, plus the unorthodox advice of old friend Phil, Simon sets out on a mission to discover love for himself.

But will he make the right choice?

Odd Bird takes a light-hearted look at the battle of the sexes, drawing on the surprising parallels between the courtship behaviours of humans and birds.

Why (have I chosen to read it)?

I wanted something light to read, and in the past few years have been lucky to have blackbirds nesting in the garden and enjoyed watching their family cycle (all survived the cats!).  So I thought this might be an enjoyable book, and teach me a little about birds as well. 

Where (am I reading it)

As winter approaches I realise I’m going to be doing a lot of reading indoors, which might get a bit repetitive for pictures (though I’m not sure one can ever have too many photos of cats)  So In future this heading will be  While (I’m reading it) to show what’s been happening in my world while I’ve been reading.

This week we had snow (which has now mostly gone), which has reminded me to get my bird table out and ready for the coming winter.    

My review of Odd Bird will be up on 15th October .

All the best, Emma of Emmabbooks.com
