Publisher's Summary

In One Wild Bird at a Time, Heinrich returns to his great love: close, day-to-day observations of individual wild birds. Heinrich's observations lead to fascinating questions - and sometimes startling discoveries. A great crested flycatcher bringing food to the young acts surreptitiously and is attacked by the mate. Why? A pair of northern flickers hammering their nest-hole into the side of Heinrich's cabin delivers the opportunity to observe the feeding competition between siblings and to make a related discovery about nest cleaning. One of a clutch of redstart warbler babies fledges out of the nest from 20 feet above the ground and lands on the grass below. It can't fly. What will happen next?

An Adventure In Nature

Heinrich is an excellent observer of the natural wild world around him. He is able to put daily observations into words with such keen detail and insight that he draws the listener into his thinking. Insightful, thoughtful and fascinating. A great introduction into the birds that surround our lives and often go unnoticed.

Heinrich is a superb educator and I am thrilled to have another of his books in my collection. This entry is not to be missed if you are interested in birds and expanding your understanding and connection with nature. A treat.
