About this book

The authors are of the opinion that birds are nothing but "glorified reptiles" from which they have descended as evidenced from fossils like Archaeopteryx, so most of the basic behaviour in birds is instinctive like that of reptiles. This book is illustrated with 43 diagrams explaining how their instinct helps them to survive and carry out their daily activities. Although they have some feelings we generally associate with humans, the authors emphasize these should not be compared with our complex behaviours like fear, anger, happiness or sadness. This book is aimed to enrich the minds of many young birdwatchers and attract them towards "bird observation", rather than mere "bird watching".
