Our newest book, Birds of Our Land by Virginia Dike has getting a lot feedback. Some readers have been inspired to go out and find out more about the birds in their back yards. Others are just glad the book exists.

And they’ve been writing in to tell us all about.

One reader says:

Thank you to Cassava Republic as a whole for publishing the book. I'm supposedly buying this for my kids, but it's really to plug the gaps of my own ignorance!

Even the author has been getting in on the act:

The last few weeks I've been walking down to a pond and wetland by our sewage plant on campus and seeing some amazing new birds.  First were about ten Dabchicks or Little Grebes (look like ducks) that ducked under whenever a Black Kite hovered overhead. Then a majestic Grey Heron. The Plovers are around again – flying overhead making their distinctive call.

What about you? What did you think of the book? Do you have any bird sighting photos or stories to share? Send your comments, observations or photos to us at

We’d love to hear from you!
