After his debut Among Penguins, Birding magazine associate editor Noah Strycker takes to the air in The Things with Feathers to explore the extraordinary intelligence of flying creatures that we often take for granted. Using examples ranging from the wonders of starling flocks to the strange syncopations of dancing parrots, he shows how what seem like bird-brained foibles are actually intricate adaptations that have kept these species alive and thriving. At almost every landing, he finds parallels between bird behavior and our own. This obvious labor of love earns reads from nature fanciers.
