This is an engaging book about birds, their senses and behaviour. What is it like to be a swift, flying at over one hundred kilometres an hour? What is going on inside the head of a nightingale as it sings? Bird Sense answers questions like these and many more and is a fascinating look at how birds interpret the world.
Tim Birkhead is a professor at the University of Sheffield and a Fellow of the Royal Society of London. His other books include The Wisdom of Birds which was voted 'Best Bird Book of the Year' 2009. Bird Sense is illustrated by Katrina Van Grouw.
