Loved it. Very interesting history and facts of Mozart's life and his relationship with the starling. It made me think about the connection between human and animals, as well as the balance between the two. I usually read non-fictions slowly but I finished this in a week. Recommended!

I love books that talk about the relationships we share with wild and domestic creatures. This lovely book addresses the personal as well as historic aspects of life with a starling companion. I had no idea that Mozart actually fell in love with a starling after hearing it singing a bit of one of his piano concerto's. That story was fascinating but the present tense story is just as delightful in my opinion. Saving a baby starling, hand feeding it and falling in love like Mozart with your tiny winged charge.
