Secret amours! Treetop trysts! Sweet songs of woo! Wild mating dances!

Birds in Love is the first natural history of the hidden love life of the feathered world, a tale too torrid to be told—until now! Come along with inquisitive photographer and birdwatcher Jean Léveillé to spy on the steamy love affairs of some extraordinary feathered creatures.
