About this book

Argues that birds have a far greater mental capacity than they have been given previous credit for. Lacking hard scientific proof of what birds think and feel, we are left, argues Skutch, with inferences gleaned from observation of their behaviour. His intimate, six-decade study of tropical and north temperate birds and his wide survey of the literature inform this remarkable review of the psychic life of birds.
