A World on the Wing - 1st edition
A World on the Wing
Scott Weidensaul

"In vivid prose that conjures up the rich spell of the landscape, Scott takes us on exhilarating expeditions that crisscross the globe and travel deep into the heart of Nature, For lifelong experts and backyard birders alike, he's a superb guide to the winged marvels that share our planet and our lives." --- Diane Ackerman, author of The Zookeeper's Wife.

An extract from Christian Cooper review.
“A World on the Wing is littered with such wonders: birds who can pack on fat without obesity’s downsides, add muscle when and where it’s needed, and burn fuel with extraordinary efficiency, qualities that would make endocrinologists, bodybuilders and weight loss gurus salivate. Migrants can even “see” the Earth’s magnetic field via the quantum entanglement of the electrons in their eyes, an evolutionary trick that is the stuff of science fiction.” --- Christian Cooper, a board member of the NYC Audubon and the author of the forthcoming memoir “Better Living Through Birding.”
