This audiobook delivers fascinating story after fascinating story about the science and biology of birds. Narrator Danny Campbell's approachable, slightly hoarse voice and conversational style match the material perfectly. He completely understands the author's sense of wonder--and the listener will feel it, too--at the complicated song of the chickadee, the innate and learned sense of navigation of migrating birds, the tool-making abilities of ravens and crows, and even the history of dinosaurs. There is fear and concern, as well--the loss of Indian vultures leaves dead animals rotting on the ground, a drop in the population of seabirds means less guano and fertilizer, and melting ice in the Antarctic reduces the food source for penguins. An engrossing reminder of the importance of birds to the world's ecosystem. A.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
