Dieses außergewöhnliche Buch erzählt die Geschichten von 80 Vögeln aus der ganzen Welt: vom geselligen Webervogel in Namibia, der in der Wüste riesige Gemeinschaftsnester mit mehreren Bruthöhlen baut, bis hin zur Streifengans in China, einem Zugvogel, der in 9.000 m Höhe fliegt und zweimal im Jahr den Himalaya überquert. Viele der Vögel tauchen in Sagen und Mythen auf, einige sind Nationalembleme, und andere haben wissenschaftliche Entdeckungen inspiriert oder Schutzprojekte angestoßen. Jeder von ihnen hat eine Geschichte, die unsere Verbundenheit mit ihnen erzählt.

What's Inside

From Madagascar and the helmet vanga to the Galapagos Islands and the courtship rituals of the male blue-footed booby (think dad dancing, but with big, blue, webbed feet), Unwin introduces a dazzling array of our feathered friends. I'm very taken with Australia's southern cassowary, a 'living dinosaur', weighing 154lb and not to be trifled with. Ryuto Miyake's illustrations bring it all alive

Wildlife author Mike Unwin takes a world tour of 80 birds with exquisite illustrations from Tokyo-based Ryuto Miyake. Inspiring myth, national pride or scientific revelation, each bird has a story to tell, from the sociable weaver bird that constructs towering multi-nest 'apartment blocks' in the Namibian desert to the bar-headed goose, whose epic, twice-yearly trans-Himalayan journey makes it one of the world's highest-flying migrants
So engagingly written that, by bird two, I was absorbed ... The book is full of nuggets about birds' places in the human psyche ... Japanese artist Ryuto Miyake's illustrations are a delight
