We see birds every day, yet we know surprisingly little about them. In this book, photographer extraordinaire Brutus Ostling presents images of particularly interesting, thought–provoking and amusing aspects of the life of birds. The text and captions provided by bird expert Magnus Ullman complement the stunning photographs.

The feathered "cast of characters" profiled is international in scope––from Sweden and the Antarctic to the deep forests of Canada, the wetlands of the United States and Spain, the deserts of Mexico to the savannahs of Tanzania: Ostling capture the grace and beauty of nearly 250 different species.

Full colour throughout, this portfolio of the best of our feathered friends makes for an amazing collection. Sure to be sought (and bought) by bird fanciers worldwide.
