Description
"After an abortive encounter with birds during spring break, a teenaged [Niall] Edworthy gave up his dream of nature photography for writing; with a number of books under his belt (The Curious Gardener's Almanac, The Optimist's/Pessimist's Handbook), he returns to his early passion for 'the magical enigma' of birds with a guidebook aimed at general readers, rather than committed bird-watchers. Full of fascinating information and trivia presented in a well-illustrated, magazine-like layout [in blue ink], Edworthy's volume discusses topics like the probability that birds and reptiles share a common, 145-million-year-old ancestor, the crow-sized Archaeopterix, and the myth that birds are largely monogamous (although swans, albatrosses and most birds of prey 'do settle down for life')."Publishers Weekly
