If you're a poetry-loving bird-watcher, this is for you. Many poets use their observations of nature as metaphors, encapsulating fresh insights into the human condition. In contrast, many of the observations in these poems are really about the birds, and nothing but the birds. Don McKay reads his own poems and, in most cases, introduces them. While his readings are capable, his introductions, being extemporaneous, are often more engaging than the works that follows. The production also includes recordings of birdcalls, which appear sporadically, and somewhat unpredictably, between other selections. The overall effect is a bit rough, and the ending of the production abrupt. J.L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
