About this Item

Forsyth "holds a doctorate in biology from Harvard University and has devoted his professional life to advancing the study of behavioural ecology." Thus, this book is not about species identification, but about why birds behave the way they do. Nesting, mating, song, infanticide, cuckoldry, parasitism, etc. Profusely illustrated with color photos from multiple sources. 160 pp. including index. Reduced from $50.
