Synopsis

Janet Doolaege



Two birds have been very much part of my life in France: Ebony the blackbird and Spica the starling. Each would have died if I hadn't cared for him, but I little dreamt what a close relationship would develop between me and these creatures of another species.



In this book I describe their progress from helpless fledglings to confident adults, their antics, quirks and highly distinctive characters, and how I had to adapt my working life to their needs and demands.



Birds are so different from us, yet my experience has shown me that we can communicate and learn to trust one another. We are, after all, close neighbours on this fragile planet.
