From the book jacket: In his modern classics One Man’s Owl and Mind of the Ravens, Bernd Heinrich has written memorably about his relationships with wild ravens and a Great Horned Owl
In One Wild Bird at a Time, Heinrich returns to his great love: close, day-to-day observations on individual wild birds. There are countless books on bird behavior, but Heinrich argues that some of the most amazing bird behaviors fall below the radar of what most birds do in aggregate. Heinrich’s “passionate observations [that] superbly mix memoir and science” (New York Times Book Review) lead to fascinating questions—and sometimes startling discoveries. Heinrich “looks closely, with his trademark ‘hands-and-knees science’ at its most engaging, [delivering] what can only be called psychological marvels of knowing” (Boston Globe).
