About this book

Language: Catalan

Following the success of Veus d'Ocells (Lynx Edicions, 2000) and 60 Ocells Comuns i Rars i de Noms Singulars (Lynx Edicions, 2002), Celdoni Fonoll offers Aucells, a work which poetically describes 60 new bird species. With this new title, Fonnoll has described over 170 bird species, all of them characteristic of Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and Valencia, and he continues to write ornithological poetry.

Joaquim Maluquer i Sostres acclaims Fonoll as the “Poet of the birds.”There is no doubt,” he says in the introduction, “of Celdoni’s great love and knowledge of birds, and that he enjoys seeing them fly freely in gardens, fields and forests. With great passion for language and literature, he has gathered all the cultural references to these birds to be found in popular as well as literary sources....Merely a quick glance at Aucells will be sufficient confirmation that Celdoni Fonoll is blessed with the rare gift of poetry.”
 
This volume has counted with the collaboration of artists and biologists, and, as in previous titles, bird poetry drawn from popular and scientific sources.
