Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The companion to the Oscar -nominated film, Winged Migration is the definitive visual account of its subject: the extraordinary flights of migrating birds around the world. Migration is an enigma. Who knows why the cuckoo, born in Europe, flies alone to the far forests of Africa, home of its ancestors? Or how the Arctic tern can fly over ten thousand miles on its astonishing journey from pole to pole? Winged Migration follows single birds and whole squadrons on their restless flights seeking answers to such riddles. The result is a tour de force that is testament to the patience of a globe-trotting team of filmmakers and ornithologists. With its informative text, Winged Migration offers both the general reader and the dedicated bird watcher a bird's-eye view of five continents and a grand, yet intimate, portrait of the secret life of birds.

Synopsis:

A companion to the Oscar-nominated film Winged Migration provides a stunning study of the flights of migrating birds around the world, following both single birds and flocks on their long odysseys and furnishing an authoritative study of the secret lives of birds around the world.
