Birds Britannica PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Birds Britannica free pdf Another magnificent achievement and a unique work of huge importance - a handsome, easy-to-read, comprehensive cultural study, species by species, of all the birds in Britain. Companion volume to Flora Britannica. Birds Britannica is neither an identification guide nor a behavioural study (though both these subjects enter its field). It covers cultural links- social history- birds as food- ecology- the lore and language of birds- myths, art, literature and music- anecdotes, birdsong and rare facts- modern developments- migration, the seasons and our sense of place. An attempt to describe the interaction of birds and humans, it captures the essence of why birds matter.
