Aside from curling up with a book, my favorite hammock activity during the warm season is bird watching. I live in an old house in a neighborhood with 100+ year old trees, so in addition to a lovely canopy of shade to lie beneath, the trees above provide many great flying friends to enjoy. I keep tabs on the local cardinals—we have a family in our juniper tree that has made several generations of new cardinals—as well as the woodpeckers, the robins, the hawks, and yes, we’ve even seen a sandhill crane in the yard. Whenever I watch birds, I’m reminded how much time I spent learning about them as a kid and how people knew one thing they could give me would always satisfy: bird gifts.
Owl mugs, bird art, parrot bookends: I love good bird gifts, and for those who, like me, fall right in the center of “bird lover” and “book lover,” you’re in for a treat with this wide array of perfect bird gifts for book lovers.
Whatever your favorite feathered friend might be, there’s a perfect bookish bird gift here for you or for that person who you know would just love it.
