Songs to Birds

Songs to Birds
de Jake Page(Ed. David R. Godine Publisher Inc) Isbn : 0879239573
21.80 €
Twenty delightful essays about nature and, especially, birds- -many of which appeared originally in Smithsonian, Country, and elsewhere. Page (coauthor, with Charles Officer, of Tales of the Earth, reviewed above, etc.) admits to sharing his home with a Polish hen and her chick, a parrot, and seven finches--but insists that this didn't start out as a book about birds. Well, it didn't end up as one either. Certainly there's wonderful material about birds here, but calling this a bird book is like calling Lewis Thomas's The Lives of a Cell a histology text. Page isn't merely a sharp observer but a ponderer: His observation of deceit in birds, for instance, leads to speculation about their ability to think and what that means about our own special place in nature (if animals can reason, he sa...
