About this book

You don't have to be a dedicated birdwatcher to be a bird lover. Millions of us love the sight and sound of them. And yet most of us know very little about their remarkable behaviour, incredible diversity and the story of their evolution. Why is it that only the male birds sing? Are birds really descended from dinosaurs? How do birds have sex? The Curious Bird Lover's Handbook sets about answering every interesting question there is to ask about birds. There are over 10,000 species in the world, including over 500 in Britain, some rare and endangered, some bizarre and beautiful, others common and familiar. As this captivating and often humorous handbook reveals, all of them are fascinating.

Biography

Writing under a variety of noms de plume, Niall Edworthy has written over a dozen books covering a wide range of subjects from military history, biography and outdoor survival to general humour and sport. When he moved house and discovered gardening, it was only a matter of time before Niall took notice of the feathered creatures with which he shared his outdoor space, and their very curious antics. Niall lives with his family in Sussex.
