Twenty-two short lessons from the secret lives of birds on living harmoniously and reconnecting with nature.

This charming volume on bird behavior invites us to take a step back from our busy lives and to listen to the tiny philosophers of the sky. From the delicate sparrow to the majestic eagle, birds are among the most fascinating species on earth, and there is much to be learned from these paragons of beauty and grace that can be applied to our lives, including:
• Independence: what it means to be “pushed out of the nest.”
• Vulnerability: what the mallard teaches us about giving up our old feathers for new ones in order to fly.
• Gender equality: what happens when a papa Turtledove sits on the nest.
• Hierarchy and power: what the raven and the vulture know about the pecking order.

Filled with elegant illustrations of bird species, this gem of a book celebrates of our friends in the sky, and what they can teach us about the rhythms of life.
