Encounters with the Wise Guys of the Avian World
A treasure trove of information and anecdotes about the wise guys of the avian world, the bright-eyed, black-winged members of the Genus Corvus, or ravens and crows, now with stories about these bright birds.
This revised and expanded edition of Candace Savage’s best-selling book about ravens and crows is enhanced by additional paintings, drawings, and photos, as well as a fascinating selection of first-person stories and poems about remarkable encounters with crows, including an account by Louise Erdrich. Based on two decades of audacious research by scientists around the world, the book also provides an unprecedented glimpse into corvids’ intellectual, social, and emotional lives. But whether viewed through the lens of science, myth, or everyday experience, these amazing birds take your breath away.
