Product description


""Readers expecting a user-friendly guide to backyard bird feeding will not find it here. This is a hard look at the practice that raises serious questions and suggests that the consequences of this commonplace and seemingly harmless and pleasant pastime need further investigation by the scientific community.... An intriguing book that is sure to ruffle the feathers of many nonscientist bird enthusiasts.""

""[An] outstanding book. It is scholarly, meticulously researched, wide-ranging, and extremely thought-provoking. Jones's descriptions of his many visits to experts on wild bird feeding are especially entertaining; you feel you almost know the people he is interviewing and are on the journey with him! There are also some lovely little flashes of a dry, almost whimsical humour.""

""The Birds at My Table is a passionate discussion of the complex ways that bird feeding matters. The author has read every scientific study of bird feeding and visited bird feeders in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. He brings his own interest in feeding birds to the table, too. The Birds at My Table is an impressively comprehensive study of why people feed birds and how birds are affected by this practice. This book will be a benchmark for those interested in the social history and ecological effects of bird feeding. Jones convincingly shows that bird feeding is a global practice with ethical implications.""

- Jeff Karnicky, author of Scarlet Experiment: Birds and Humans in America

""The Birds at My Table is a delightful and informative read by a keen naturalist and gifted scholar that will deepen your understanding of birds and why so many of us are compelled to feed them.""

- John M. Marzluff, Professor of Wildlife Science and author of Welcome to Subirdia
