About this title:

Synopsis: Why were barnacle geese once classified as fish? When were kingfisher feathers used as love charms? Flights of Fancy is an endlessly browsable guide to the fascinating stories and bizarre superstitions that surround some of the world’s best-loved birds. Ranging from a traditional Italian account of how the nightingale learned to sing to an exploration of the Welsh belief that eagles breeds storms on Mount Snowdon, it’s the perfect bedside companion for every birdwatcher.

About the Author: Peter Tate has published several books on ornithology, including Bird, Men and Books: A Literary History of Ornithology and A Century of Bird Books. When his publisher Anthony Witherby died some years ago, he placed the manuscript of his next book quietly away on a shelf and there it remained until earlier this year.
