Beloved author Sy Montgomery explores the essence of the otherworldly creatures we see every day. By way of her adventure with seven birds - wild, tame, exotic and common - she teaches us that birds are far stranger, more wondrous, and at the same time more like us than we might have dared to imagine. And despite birds' and humans' disparate evolutionary paths, we share emotional and intellectual abilities that allow us to communicate and even form deep bonds. Book jacket.
