Über diesen Titel


This classic, illustrated study of waterside birds keenly observed by foremost British naturalist who lived along England's eastern coast, is published for the first time by an American publisher, so that American naturalists may share his knowledge and deep enjoyment of these splendid, free creatures. Fusing the scientist's curious eye with the artist's esthetic sense, the author writes feelingly of wild geese and wading birds, of terns and gulls, petrels and shearwaters, mallards, teals, herons, and cormorants, rekindling in naturalists everywhere the thrill of watching some fairy-feathered flock as it sails and swoops, tracing out its dance before the brightened stage of sky and sea. As Robert Arbib remarks in his foreward, "The art of describing a bird, precisely, so that we can see every detail of its plumage, visualise it in its natural setting, observe its smallest and most typical movements, and even hear its one given to few writers. Perry does it repeatedly...This is not simply lyrical description, this is the reflection of sensitive and questioning observation." Illustrated with line drawings of birds doing what birds do.
