The Won­der of Birds

Jim Rob­bins, Black Inc, $34.99

Australian Geographic - - Walk about -

NEW YORK TIMES sci­ence jour­nal­ist Jim Rob­bins be­lieves birds are our most cru­cial con­nec­tion to nature, the me­chan­ics of flight, col­lec­tive be­hav­iour and even how our own brain works. Birds have al­ways been im­por­tant in myth and leg­end and Rob­bins in­cludes plenty of Aus­tralian ex­am­ples in this sweep­ing sur­vey of avian his­tory – and its po­ten­tially per­ilous fu­ture.
