About this book

Language: German

Each bird has a personal destiny. It is not only a representative of a species or subspecies, but an individual with personal characteristics. Not every blackbird or sparrow is the same. On the basis of thorough studies, but also on the basis of often little known and forgotten amateur work Dr. Walter A. Sontag provides here an exemplary cross-section through the challenges in the different life stages and life of a bird: From unhatched individual, nestling or nest leaver, until later parents or helpers. The individual approach to the environment is the focus, be it in the use of resources, weather, predators and parasites, in reproduction and breeding, or large-scale migrations. The individual also shows itself in the use of its senses, in the vocalizations and the richly varied appearance of bird individuals. The volume of ornithological appearances and life forms seems endless.

Summary in German:
Jeder Vogel hat ein persönliches Schicksal. Er ist nicht allein Re­präsen­tant einer Art oder Unterart, sondern Individuum mit persönlichen Eigen­heiten. Amsel ist also nicht gleich Amsel, Spatz nicht gleich Spatz. Auf dem Boden profunder Studien, vielfach auch wenig bekannter und vergessener Amateur- und Forscherarbeiten bietet der Autor Dr. Walter A. Sontag einen exem­plari­schen Quer­schnitt durch Herausforderungen in den Lebens­stadien und Lebens­bereichen eines Vogels: Vom unge­schlüpften Indivi­duum, Nestling oder Nest­flüch­ter bis zum späteren Eltern- oder Helfer-Alltag. Die indivi­duelle Ausein­ander­set­zung mit der Umwelt steht im Fokus, sei es im Umgang mit Ressour­cen, Wetter, Beutegreifern und Parasiten, bei der Fort­pflan­zung und Brut oder den großräu­migen Wande­run­gen. Das Indivi­duelle zeigt sich auch beim Gebrauch der Sinne, in den Laut­äuße­rungen und im varian­tenrei­chen äußeren Erschei­nungsbild des Vogel­indivi­duen. Das Band ornitholo­gischer Erscheinungs- und Lebens­formen wirkt endlos
