Author Biography

A former magazine writer and publisher who recently published an inspiring booklet for those suffering during difficult times. With my latest book I intend to raise awareness and provide the knowledge required to effortlessly create a safe environment for our birds, while also exploring the nature of human existence.

What inspired me to write this book was a combination of encouragement from my eldest daughter to tell this story after the loss of my youngest daughter's pet cockatiel.
I eventually became aware of how human actions can have a dire impact on the environment where our wildlife exist.
I took action to bring about change and this led me on a journey of discovery about nature, and the desire to do what is right.
It became clear how our connection to nature can have a positive impact on our outlook, human spirit and provide us with a meaningful reward.

The Bird Whispers and the Bird Whisperer by KC Morcom is a wonderful book that connects readers with nature in a unique and refreshing manner using poems, pictures, illustrations, and short rhyming stories. The book is educational and informative and the bird species profiles and bird watching tips will interest all bird lovers and bird watchers. The book has been divided into two parts; the first one is The Bird Whispers and the Bird Whisperer, and the second part is About Birds, and their ability to soar through the air will fascinate readers and will make them realize how even expert aviators are unable to match the natural skills of a bird. The section on Big Cats, Small Cats is equally interesting and informative and sheds light on the species.

The Bird Whispers and the Bird Whisperer is a real treat for all readers who love nature and birds, and I like the way KC Morcom knits in the short stories, poems, pictures, and illustrations seamlessly. The formatting is aesthetic and reveals the creativity and imagination of the author. Usually, topics like this are dealt with in a methodical and structured manner, giving it a textbook feel but this is so exciting to read; the formatting, the presentation, the words, the pictures all contribute to the appeal of this book. The rhythmic narration, melodious voice, and the colorful pictures make this a must-have on bookshelves and in libraries because of the manner in which the information is conveyed. It is a good way to encourage readers to protect birds and animals and connect with nature and its charm in an entertaining way. The tips on how to attract birds to your garden or yard are helpful when it comes to having birds around and observing them.

The Bird Whispers and the Bird Whisperer is a work of non-fiction presented as a book of illustrations, photographs, and rhyming tales to educate readers on the topic of birds in nature, and was created by author K.C. Morcom. This short and sweet read explores different types of birds, and how we can make the human world a safer place for them to coexist with us. The work contains comprehensive profiles on different species, as well as poetic compositions that deliver prominent messages about how human action impacts on nature, and how we really ought to appreciate our connection to nature rather than losing it entirely.

Author K.C. Morcom has crafted a truly insightful work that offers plenty of information and entertainment. I liked the fact that mediums are mixed because it means that the book can be enjoyed on different levels by people of all ages within the family, whether it’s being used with its gorgeous photographs for a spotting guide, appreciated for its lovely entertaining rhymes, or discussed on a more complex level about the themes of human impact. The presentation is smooth and stellar throughout for a professional finish, and the organization of the work flows in a logical, immersive order. I also think the work shines because you can tell, in its every detail, that the author is so passionate about the subject matter, which is truly inspiring. Overall, I would certainly recommend The Bird Whispers and the Bird Whisperer as essential reading for all nature-loving people and families out there.

The Bird Whispers and the Bird Whisperer by K.C. Morcom is a valuable, detailed work that shares heart-warming experiences and information about birds and nature. It begins with an account of a lost cockatiel. With cats roaming their neighborhood, Morcom fears for her daughter’s lost bird. Other similar delightful experiences recount childhood and more recent events related to birds and nature. In the second part of the book, specific details about various birds such as budgerigars, peacocks, swallows, and tawny owls are discussed. The discussions include each bird’s lifestyle habits, breeding, geographical distribution, related species, and an in-depth description of each bird. Bird watching tips and bird references are also included. Information about different species of big and small cat species is contained as well.

Each description in The Bird Whispers and the Bird Whisperer is preceded by a colorful illustration of the bird which helps to identify it and recall details about it. I also loved the accounts included in the first part. They are poetic and they show engaging interactions between humans and birds and are also entertaining. The second part of the work is well-laid out and contains comprehensive information for each type of bird or cat included. Specific information is offered which taught me even more about each bird. Fascinating facts also appear such as a Hoopoe’s strategies to ward off predators which include the ability to produce a strong, stinky odor. Reading about each cat’s specific habits was also eye-opening. The Bird Whispers and the Bird Whisperer by K.C. Morcom is a wonderful book that creates awareness of the need to protect birds and their habitats. It contains good information for any birder.
