Description
The author of The Silence of the Songbirds, shortlisted for Canada's Governor General's Award, biologist Bridget Stutchbury here takes readers along on her escapades as a bird detective, stalking subjects through the woods for hours, taking blood samples from nestlings for DNA analysis, and mounting miniature tracking devices on tiny feathered backs. Describing such escapades as capturing several young white-and-brown male purple martins and painting them the darker color of mature males to see if they become more successful than their unaltered peers in wresting away nest sites from older males (they were), her book is a treasure trove of insights into bird behavior.

"Stutchbury's new, informal work on bird behavior just begs to be read under a backyard tree. The book could serve as beach reading too; marine birds such as the albatross and rhinoceros auklet put in appearances."Science News
