Caw of the Wild: Observations from the Secret World of Crows


Caw of the Wild: Observations from the Secret World of Crows Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Caw of the Wild is an in-depth exploration into the intriguing and complex behavior of one of North America's most intelligent, but often reviled, birds-the American Crow.

As a passionate observer, author Barb Kirpluk shares her extraordinary and fascinating findings while tracking three urban crow families through their daily existence. By befriending the birds and gaining their trust, Kirpluk shares many observations on subjects such as:

  • The language of crows
  • Crow habits and social relationships
  • The endearing personal relationships that evolved and allowed her to learn from the birds

    Kirpluk brings to life the unforgettable characters of these birds by combining anecdotal tales and recent scientific literature. Her quest eventually leads her to the world of wildlife rehabilitation where, for a year, she studies and catalogues a group of captive crows.

    Caw of the Wild is an honest and heartfelt portrayal of a misunderstood bird, and may just encourage you to take a new look at the American crow.
