Product Synopsis

Birds Britannica is neither an identification guide nor a behavioural study (though both these subjects enter its field). It covers cultural links; social history; birds as food; ecology; the lore and language of birds; myths, art, literature and music; anecdotes, birdsong and rare facts; modern developments; migration, the seasons and our sense of place. An attempt to describe the interaction of birds and humans, it captures the essence of why birds matter.

Author Choice

An encyclopaedic treasure trove of the stories, anecdotes, traditions and folklore that explains the importance birds have had in the cultural inheritance of Britain and their current status today, all miraculously woven into one stylish and colourful narrative. An Aladdin’s cave of information and ideas, with a wonderful native guide.

Jeremy Mynott - 13/03/2012
