Loons dance duets atop the water; warblers sing sweet songs to woo the opposite sex; the ruffed grouse beats a startling rhythm; and all manner of males display their true colors, from the brilliant red of the cardinal to the iridescent blue of the peacocks tail. A natural history of the secret love life of birds, this book lets us in on the most charming--and sometimes downright peculiar--behavior in the avian repertory. The author, a veteran watcher and photographer of birds, chronicles the amours of thirty species, including loons, peacocks, hummingbirds, ostriches, mallards, doves, swans, and ravens. LŠveillŠ writes each essay in a personal manner, speculating and observing from the birders blind and describing his travels in pursuit of these birds and their stories. A congenial guide, he offers a rare, intimate glimpse into the mating behavior of some of the worlds most lovely and beloved creatures. Finally, a new type of book for all of your bird-loving customers.
