Bird Sense: what it’s like to be a bird
All six judges also rated this book very highly. Professor Birkhead knows the science of bird senses intimately and has provided an overview that will fascinate readers as well as inform. Anyone who enjoys watching birds will find it a wonderful, cover-to-cover read, and will learn much, whatever their scientific interest or initial knowledge of the subject. Some judges felt that the subject matter and brilliant writing warranted higher production standards, such as more illustration, but this would of course incur costs: the low price of the book as published is another of its virtues.
