Description
Illustrated throughout with more than 100 colorful examples of various naturalists' art, many of them rarely seen before, this history of ornithology is a book full of stories, knowledge, and unexpected revelations. Animal behaviorist Tim Birkhead, also the author of the McColvin Medal–winning Cambridge Encyclopedia of Birds, takes readers on a journey through the world of birds: conception and egg, territory and song, breeding and migration. In the process, he reveals how birders have overcome centuries-old superstitions and untested truths to achieve a firmer understanding of birds.

"There are plenty of writers who have an understanding of natural science, and there are plenty of scientists who try to write. But there are precious few with the combined abilities of professor Tim Birkhead. His instinct for the stories within ornithology and his gift for making technical matters accessible and simple are rare talents indeed."—Mark Cocker
