The Birds of Pandemonium: Life Among the Exotic and the Endangered

The Birds of Pandemonium: Life Among the Exotic and the Endangered

Michele Raffin Hardcover, 218 pages; 2014
#UJ5052 $24.95 $19.96

Both hilarious and heartbreaking, this remarkable memoir introduces Pandemonium Aviaries - a bird sanctuary (and Michele Raffin's family home) that houses surprising populations of some of our planet's rarest (and most incredible) birds. Raffin's engaging account of her late-in-life transformation into an avian conservationist is an entertaining and inspiring treat, but her beloved, personality-filled birds truly steal the show. You'll meet Oscar, the tiny flightless finch, loaded with "can-do" moxie despite his handicap; Amigo, a cantankerous old red-headed Amazon parrot with a salty vocabulary; Tico, a blue and gold macaw, known for his sneaky practical jokes and brilliant dancing; and so many more! Amazing full-color photos of several of the exotic residents of Pandemonium enhance this wonderful book about the necessity of taking care of our natural world, and the joy that it can bring. (CH)
