Our Feathered Friends, by Elizabeth Grinnell (1851 - 1935) and Joseph Grinnell (1877 - 1939)
This volume displays the romance of birds in beautiful prose and dialog in simple language for children and adults alike. Written by a mother and son team of naturalists, chapters describe various aspects of the life and habits of birds highlighting specific birds from owls to hummingbirds. From the introduction:

“Seek the children, little book: Bid them love the bird's retreat . . . Bid them find their secrets out, How to understand their words.”
(Summary by Larry Wilson)
