Description
One of those rare and refreshing naturalists with a palpable gift for writing, Jake Page concentrates here (more or less) on his favorite subjects: birds. And in these essays they are presented in every stripe—the swaggering starlings, the querulous gulls, kingbirds, blackbirds, and crows—illuminated with Wesley Bates' fine engravings. But birds only provide the theme upon which Page hangs the substance of the pieces: how animals behave with each other, with us, and with the world at large. His real story is how life evolves and interacts, how ponds gradually support an ecosystem, how birds migrate, how animals communicate (and even how toads copulate).

"A highly polished essayist of the first order, on a rank with Edward Hoagland and Lewis Thomas."—Russell Baker
