Corvus: A Life with Birds PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Corvus: A Life with Birds free pdf Esther Woolfson's daughter rescued Chicken, a fledgling rook sixteen years ago. Amazed by their intelligence and personalities, Woolfson became fascinated by corvids. Chicken, Spike the magpie, and, most recently, Ziki the Crow, have formed sibling relationships with Woolfson's daughters and with each other- cached food in her kitchen wall and laid eggs in her living room- called to her at dawn, and perched companionably on her knee of an evening- and taught her more than she ever expected about birds and about human beings. Woolfson's account of her experiences is funny, touching and beautifully written, and gives fascinating insights into the closeness human beings can achieve with wild creatures.
