Summary
In One Wild Bird at a Time, Heinrich shares his great love: close, day-to-day observations of individual wild birds. There are countless books on bird behavior, but Heinrich argues that some of the most amazing bird behaviors fall below the radar of what most birds do in aggregate. Heinrich’s passionate observations superbly mix memoir and science and lead to fascinating questions — and sometimes startling discoveries
