  Here is a guide on how to find all of the birds for the Bird of Paradise Journey Book. Some of the birds take a few seconds to appear. Blue Bird: The blue bird of paradise can be found on top of the cart with the white flowers. Greater: The greater bird of paradise can be found in a tree on the lower right side of the area.   Megan Mayhew Bergman's short story collection, Birds of a Lesser Paradise, is a definite find. Sometimes moving, sometimes funny, sometimes insightful, these stories depict women's interactions with nature in its many forms--biological, zoological, and psychological--and how sometimes you just don't understand its influence/5.

“ Birds of a Lesser Paradise is an astonishing debut collection, by a writer reminiscent of such greats as Alice Munro, Elizabeth Strout and even Chekhov.

  Megan Mayhew Berman’s debut collection of stories, Birds of A Lesser Paradise, deals mainly in nature and with a woman’s role in today’s South. Her writing shines when linking nature and not. And in the title story, a lonely naturalist allows an attractive stranger to lead her and her aging father on a hunt for an elusive woodpecker. As intelligent as they are moving, the stories in Birds of a Lesser Paradise are alive with emotion, wit, and insight into the impressive power that nature has over all of us.
