Here a few suggestions if you looking for a summer book to read: WHAT THE ROBIN KNOWS, by JonYoung and GIFTS OF THE CROW, by John Marzluff and Tony Angell. Both books are about bird intelligence and communication. Corvids have long been known as the smartest of birds. The book about crows and ravens is a wonderful outline of the fundamentals of intelligent brain wiring, both corvids and our own. The Robin book is about bird communication and how it can inform us of hidden happenings in the world around us. Through this book I’ve learned how to follow the grey fox through the thicket the surrounds the back of my yard without ever catching sight of him. Red Wing blackbirds are always a part of the posse keeping track of the fox, and their chek-chek-chek call of warning is almost always directly overhead. Happy reading.
