The Love Lives of Birds: Courting and Mating Rituals

Laura Erickson (Author)
Available

Description

From the lifelong devotion of the American crow to the dalliances of the eastern bluebird, from the bald eagle's dazzling aerial display to the male ruby-throated hummingbird's reputation as a "deadbeat dad" -- courtship, mating, and parenting differ dramatically among birds. Ornithologist and author Laura Erickson takes readers on a romance-fueled romp through the love lives of 35 species, exploring the diversity of avian approaches to pairing up. Each species spotlight pairs Erickson's remarkable depth of scientific knowledge with her talent for drawing humorous and insightful parallels between human and bird. The result is a riveting read for bird-watchers and nature lovers alike.
