In The Genius of Birds, acclaimed author Jennifer Ackerman explores the newly discovered brilliance of birds and how it came about. As she travels around the world to the most cutting-edge frontiers of research??" the distant laboratories of Barbados...

RSPB Migration Hotspots: The World's Best Bird Migration Sites

In a handful of places around the world, a combination of geography, topography and climate combine to funnel migrant birds into narrow fronts, leading to migration hotspots, places where, for a few days each year, birds seem to be everywhere. The sight of thousands upon thousands of birds is one of nature's greatest wildlife spectacles....

A Rage for Falcons: An Alliance Between Man and Bird

With a new introduction by Helen MacDonald, A Rage For Falcons not only shares the history of falconry, but shows the personal side in a way only Bodio can share. With masterful prose and breathtaking imagery, you not only understand how falconry has lasted, but why. As Bodio so appropriately notes...

Birdsong by the Seasons: A Year of Listening to Birds

Birdsong by the Seasons: A Year of Listening to Birds by Donald KroodsmaBirdsong by the Seasons is a celebration of birdsong from January through December. The stories begin with a pileated woodpecker on New Year's Day; they unfold through the year, covering limpkins and scrub-jays in February in Florida, prairie birds in May, Scarlet Tanagers in July, and ending with a chorus of singing birds in Massachusetts just before Christmas. Readers get inside the mind of a scientist and see how answers only lead to more questions. Kroodsma provides a unique experience: with his gentle guidance, the pairing of sonagrams with the audio makes birdsong accessible and fascinating....

RSPB Spotlight: Robins

RSPB Spotlight: Robins by Marianne TaylorTheir melodious voices, bright red breasts and cheeky attitudes have always endeared Robins to the public, but how much do we really know about these familiar garden visitors. The characteristic image of a Robin on a spade handle is actually a consequence of their keen territorial instincts - males are often to be seen seeking a favourable lookout post. Despite their cute appearance, Robins are aggressively territorial and because they hold their territories all year round, Robins are one of the only UK birds that can still be heard singing in our gardens on Christmas Day, which has perhaps...
