Explores the life of birds. From the secrets of migration to their complicated family lives, their differing habitats and survival techniques to the secrets of flight, this work offers an account of how birds live, why they matter, and whether they really are dinosaurs.
When Colin Tudge was a small boy in South London he could recognize only five kinds of birds. Following a childhood spent at London Zoo and in conversation by the seaside with a bird-watching cousin, he began to perceive that 'ordinary birds' included pipits and wagtails, terns and kestrels, yellowhammers and robins, and a miscellany of crows, not all of which were black. So began a lifelong interest in birds and how they live. After studying zoology at Cambridge, Colin began writing about science, first as features editor at the New Scientist and then as a documentary maker for BBC radio. Now a full-time writer, he appears regularly as a public speaker in all kinds of venues, including the University of Beijiny and St Paul's Cathedral. A Fellow of the Linnean Society of London, he was a visiting Research Fellow at the Centre of Philosophy at the London School of Economics for ten years. He is passionate about food and farming and is currently involved in the founding of The Landshare Trust for Enlightened Agriculture. His books include The Secret Life of Trees, The Variety of Life and So Shall We Reap.
