City Birds is a witty, upbeat story two falcon hatchlings named Stars and Stripes atop a skyscraper in Cleveland, Ohio. The two young birds are introduced to the life of a bird of prey in a big city. With their parents’ guidance, the young birds learn to catch pigeons (and not the “fowl” balls that come from the nearby baseball stadium), how to interact with humans (who are kind enough to feed the local pigeon “livestock”), and finally, how to fly, the final skill that will allow them to leave their concrete home to hunt for food and start their own homes and families. Told with tongue in cheek humor that will keep readers chuckling from cover to cover.
