Overview

Caw of the Wild is an in-depth exploration into the intriguing and complex behavior of one of North America's most intelligent, but often reviled, birds-the American Crow.

As a passionate observer, author Barb Kirpluk shares her extraordinary and fascinating findings while tracking three urban crow families through their daily existence. By befriending the birds and gaining their trust, Kirpluk shares many observations on subjects such as:

  • The language of crows
  • Crow habits and social relationships
  • The endearing personal relationships that evolved and allowed her to learn from the birds

    Kirpluk brings to life the unforgettable characters of these birds by combining anecdotal tales and recent scientific literature. Her quest eventually leads her to the world of wildlife rehabilitation where, for a year, she studies and catalogues a group of captive crows.

    Caw of the Wild is an honest and heartfelt portrayal of a misunderstood bird, and may just encourage you to take a new look at the American crow.

    You will learn an awful lot about the way crows live in this very detailed view of their lives. Never boring, or overly bogged down with dry or stiff science talk it reads like a story. Yet the book is packed with information on behavior, and great stories of crows the author has studied. Humorous and poignant, you won¿t know whether to laugh or cry. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves nature. Those of you who are interested in crows will find plenty to entertain, and those of you less than enamored will never look at them as ¿big black birds¿ again.

    Caw of the Wild is an intimate look at one woman¿s love affair with the American crow. Beautifully written, laced with humor and filled with raw emotion, the book reveals the character of these often misunderstood birds. The author examines the natural lives and habits of crows through several years of meticulous observation and study. Highly recommended for an individual or group interested in a behavioral analysis of the American crow.
