This book really caught my attention because it's a topic I know nothing about, and the summary got me very curious.

The amount of information included here and how much research had to be done in order to create this is really admirable, so much was being shared in just one paragraph! I did have to re-read some parts to get it all in my head.

In Bird Magic we read about the role birds have played in the past and in different cultures, and the connection they have with the Ancient Goddess. Many people have considered birds to be special beings, and we get an amazing history lesson from these pages, and even some activities to get closer to birds and the Goddess.

Not only that, but this book also includes an encyclopedia with the description of many birds, along with their characteristics, magical workings and how to make a connection with them.

A really interesting and entertaining book, even if you don't know much about the topic.

Thank you for reading! ♥

  2. Thanks for sharing - I hadn't heard about this one. I find Wicca interesting, but I didn't really give much thought to how birds play into it, etc.
