New Title: Eva Meijer - The Bird Cottage

Len Howard (1894-1973) spent the second half of her life in a small, remote house in the English countryside. She wrote two international bestsellers about robins, tits, sparrows, and other birds living in and around her house. 

Although not originally a biologist, she was a pioneer in the field of animal research, studiying the birds on the basis of their trust.
