About this book

Twelve birds. One country. A wild Ireland waiting to be discovered.

In Ireland Through Birds, Conor O'Brien takes the reader on an ornithological adventure around Ireland in search of twelve of our rarest and most elusive birds. Along the journey the author explores every kind of landscape and habitat our island has to offer across all four seasons, from the remote isles of Donegal to the rugged mountains of Kerry and urban parks of Dublin. Through it all, O'Brien is enchanted by calling corncrakes, mesmerised by hunting harriers, and chased by angry skuas. It's a journey through a staggering array of landscapes that'll bring the reader face to face with the rich history and stunning wildlife to be savoured right on our doorstep. It explores the stories of the remarkable birds that live here: the genius of the jay, the sublime mimicry of the cuckoo, the nocturnal prowess of the barn owl, while paying a moving,poetic tribute to our natural heritage – and a warning about the threats that face it.

Ireland Through Birds is a unique blend of natural history and travelogue, making it a great read for anyone with an interest in Ireland's natural world.
