A persistent bird feeding myth is that feeding birds during the summer will make the birds dependent on handouts or lazy when seeking natural food sources. This is simply untrue—studies have shown that wild birds typically receive no more than 25 percent of their daily food from feeders, and for many backyard species the total is even lower.   The book was written by Margarita Engle and illustrated by Julie Paschkis. This is a booktalk I did for my SLIS course at the University of North Texas. Skip navigation.

A Summer Bird-Cage is the debut novel by Margaret Drabble published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson. The title of the novel is taken from a quotation from the play The White Devil by John Webster: ‘"Tis just like a summer bird-cage in a garden: the birds that are without despair to get in, and the birds within despair and are in a consumption for fear they shall never get out.".   Densely crafted, wildly imaginative, and beautifully realized, SUMMER & BIRD is a complex book with a deliberate, convoluted narrative voice. Its magical realism requires some suspension of disbelief as it moves seamlessly between the world we know and debut author Katherine Catmull's invention, where girls and birds converse and cosmic forces are at work.5/5.

Maria studied the whole life cycle of the summer birds, and documented what she learned in vibrant paintings. This is the story of one young girl who took the time to observe and learn, and in so doing disproved a theory that went all the way back to ancient Greece. Order book here.
