Birds in Their Habitats: Journeys with a Naturalist (AU Edition)
Everywhere we go there are birds, and they all have mysteries tobe unravelled. These mysteries include the way they look, frombizarre to apparently mundane, why they live where they live, andthe things they do, many of which are far too incredible ever to beimagined as fiction.Birds in Their Habitats is a collection of stories andexperiences, which introduce fascinating aspects of birdlife,ecology and behaviour. Informed by a wealth of historical andcontemporary research, Ian Fraser takes the reader on a journeythrough four continents: from places as unfamiliar as the ChonosArchipelago of southern Chile and the arid Sahel woodlands ofnorthern Cameroon to those as familiar as a suburban backyard. Thisis a book of discovery of birds and the places they live. And withhumour and personal insight, it is a book about the sometimesstrange world of the people who spend a life absorbed in birds.
