Bird Sense: What it's like to be a bird

Tim Birkhead

What is it like to be a swift, flying at over one hundred kilometers an hour? Or a flamingo sensing invisible rain falling hundreds of kilometers away? Or a kiwi, ploddng through humid undergrowth in the pitch dark of a New Zealand night? And what does a gannet feel on being reunited with its partner after a winter apart?

This book addresses these and many other questions by describing senses bird use to interpret their environment and to interact with each other. Our affinity for birds is often said to be the result of shares senses - vision and hearing - but how exactly do their senses compare to our own? 265 pages.
