From the Publisher

“I began my morning with a good long sing perched on the curtain rod in Mother and Father’s bedroom. It’s a cheerful, sunny spot and so high up that no one ever notices the droppings I leave behind.”

While Joseph and Maya are at school, Bird roams the neighborhood with best friends Humphrey the giant dog and Slick the albino python. When they find a mangy, snaggle-tooth kitten caught in a tree, Bird thinks “predator,” Humphrey thinks “annoying,” Slick thinks “lunch” and Grandpa thinks “My Fluffy!” Who’s right?

Why is Slick so cranky?

Will kind Humphrey accidently crush the tiny kitten in his huge slavering jaws?

Can Grandpa climb a tree?

Is the kitten really an embodiment of evil?

Join Bird and his animal friends in this death-defying fifth short story adventure in the Grandpa Hates the Bird series. Plus, find out the real story behind why Grandpa hates Bird!

"This is like their summer vacation spot and where they have their young," says Bob Nixon, in the boat. "Then they spend most of their lives in the Amazon." It wasn't so long ago that the ospreys – and other large birds of prey known as raptors – avoided this place. The Anacostia, often called Washington's forgotten river, was too polluted to support wildlife. Nearly nine miles long, the river flows from M

Rising Skyscrapers Are Sentencing Hundreds of Millions of Birds to Death a Year

On a chilly day in Toronto, Michael Mesure, executive director of a local bird conservation group, leads me up several flights of stairs in City Hall. We walk down a hallway and there stands a large, white chest—a freezer—with a lid straining to close against its contents. Mesure removes a heavy Rubbermaid bin to reveal dozens of migratory birds of every size and plumage—hermit thrushes, common yellowthroats, white-crowned sparrows. Some look mummified in Saran wrap; others are frozen in plastic bags. There’s at least a hundred inside. “This is barely a sample of the birds we’ve picked up,” sa

Did Meryl Streep Misrepresent MMA?

On the way to denouncing Donald Trump during her Golden Globes speech Sunday, Meryl Streep ended up miffing some sports fans. “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners,” she said, “and if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts—which are not the arts.” Just as Trump would soon shoot back at Streep, the mixed martial arts community soon took issue with her comment. Scott Coker, president of Bellator MMA, wrote her an open letter inviting her to attend a fight so she could see that “mixed martial arts celebrates male and female athletes fr
