I always find the same thing: far fewer birds when I'm looking for them.

Brave of you to tackle the book! I have a friend with a similiar phobia, so you're not alone.

Funny how they are not there when you're paying full attention!
Phobias are odd things - I can't identify what sparked mine, and I'm ok with little birds, but bigger ones, dead ones, ones in the house, and the aforementioned pictures make me very uncomfortable.

I feel so sad for you since birds are a total joy for me, all of them not just a few species.

Oddly, I was looking at this book in Waterstones earlier today and decided not to buy it because there were no real images of birds. Just as well we are all so different!

I think my phobia is lessening a bit - I do love to see the birds, especially the smaller ones - but even in that book the illustration of the peregrine gave me a start!
