About this book

No group of animals is more visible, ubiquitous and easier to see than birds. From frigatebirds soaring over Rio de Janeiro to bowerbirds displaying in the suburbs of Canberra, penguins in Cape Town to pelicans in San Francisco to huge flocks of starlings roosting around the Colosseum in Rome, the world's cities provide a remarkable array of avian sights, sounds and spectacles.

Urban Aviary provides city-dwellers around the world with a guide to some of the most extraordinary species of birds that live alongside them.
