Birds Britannica, Hardback

Birds Britannica Hardback



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.
