What It's Like to Be a Bird

What It’s Like to Be a Bird by David Allen Sibley is a wonderful introduction for birdwatchers, but it’s also an appreciation of the marvelous diversity and ingenuity of our feathered neighbors. With huge color illustrations and a wide array of birds on display, the book is a visual treat. It’s also full of interesting tidbits, like the fact that cormorants are the most efficient marine predators in the world, or that the New Caledonian Crow of the South Pacific can problem solve at the intellectual level of a small child. There are also useful tips, like what to do if you come across a bird’s nest on or near your home. As spring approaches and the weather warms, this is the perfect companion for anyone wanting to take more interest in the natural world. (Non-Fiction)
