The Brilliance of Birds


Categories: , ,


Skye Wishart & Ein Whitehead | 385 pages | 2019 | hardcover

A New Zealand Birdventure.

Zany, off-kilter, wondrous and wild, The brilliance of Birds gives a behind the scenes glimpse into the lives of some of New Zealand’s feathered friends.

Who knew that the morepork, our forest-dwelling owl, can turn its head 270 degrees? Or that the eastern bar-tailed godwit doubles its body weight before undertaking an epic and continuous migration of 11,000 kilometres? Or that the tūī has two voiceboxes – enabling it to duet with itself – one producing sounds too high-frequency for humans to hear?
