Synopsis: In One Wild Bird at a Time, Heinrich returns to his great love: close, day-to-day observations of individual wild birds. Heinrich's observations lead to fascinating questions - and sometimes startling discoveries. A great crested flycatcher bringing food to the young acts surreptitiously and is attacked by the mate. Why? A pair of Northern flickers hammering their nest-hole into the side of Heinrich's cabin delivers the opportunity to observe the feeding competition between siblings, and to make a related discovery about nest-cleaning. One of a clutch of redstart warbler babies fledges out of the nest from twenty feet above the ground, and lands on the grass below. It can't fly. What will happen next?

From the Inside Flap: The acclaimed scientist s encounters with individual wild birds, yielding marvelous, mind-altering (Los Angeles Times) insights and discoveries.

In his modern classic One Man s Owl and Mind of the Raven, Bernd Heinrich has written memorably about his relationships with wild ravens and a great horned owl.

In One Wild Bird at a Time, Heinrich returns to his great love: close, day-by-day observations of individual wild birds. There are countless books on bird behavior, but, writes Heinrich, some of the most amazing bird behaviors fall below the radar of what most birds do in aggregate. Heinrich s passionate observations [that] superbly mix memoir and science (New York Times) lead to fascinating questions and sometimes startling discoveries. A great crested flycatcher bringing food to its young acts surreptitiously and is attacked by its mate. Why? A pair of northern flickers hammering their nesthole into the sides of Heinrich s cabin offer the opportunity to observe the feeding competition between siblings, and to make a related discovery about nest-cleaning. One of a clutch of redstart warbler babies fledges out of the nest from twenty feet above the ground and lands on the grass below. It can t fly. What will happen next?

Heinrich looks closely, with his trademark hands-and-knees science at its most engaging, [delivering] what can only be called psychological marvels of knowing (Boston Globe).
