Publisher Comments:

"Rare Encounters with Ordinary Birds" is a collection of seventeen thoughtful essays on birds capture the sense of wonder and connection people have for these marvelous creatures. Naturalist Lyanda Lynn Haupt, an ornithology teacher and researcher, examines the amazing talents and personalities of the most common of birds. She muses on the tarnished reputation of the starling, the sexed-up antics of male woodpeckers, and the mysterious behavior and startling population explosion of crows in her hometown. Through the eye and voice of this talented writer, birds provide a fascinating point of contact with the natural world at large. This book is nature writing at its best with compelling stories that hold readers' attention so closely they don't even realize how much they're learning.

It's a small jewel of a book I've read many times. Lyanda Lynn Haupt reminds me of Barry Holstun Lopez and Robert Michael Pyle. Last of introduction reads: "Birds will give you a window, if you allow them. They will show you secrets from another world, fresh vision that, though avian, can accompany you home and alter your life. They will do this for you, even if you don't know them by name - though such knowing is a thoughtful gesture. They will do this for you if you watch them." It's cataloged and sold as a bird book - and it's so so much more...
