            Feats Beyond Amazing: the Life Story of a Bar-Tailed Godwit (Paperback)

            After years of observation, a clear picture has emerged of a creature so incredible, that its feats are beyond amazing. A male bar-tailed godwit, that carries a white flag engraved with the black letters, AJD, completes a 30,000 km round trip each year to nest in north-west Ala...ska. These epic trips are proof of their navigation skills and endurance, earning the species a place in Guinness World Records, for the longest non-stop journey of any creature on earth. Even more incredible, AJD migrates north each year, often at the same time, on the same day, and from the same spot. This book tells, for the first time, the close relationship between this wild bird and the book's author, a connection that to date has spanned thirteen years. This story is based in Whanganui, New Zealand.

            Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly? Or to live high in the tree tops? Or perhaps you've wondered what birds do when no one is looking? Birds have some of the most extraordinary - and peculiar - behaviours on the planet. Ravens love PLAYING games. In winter, they ...sledge down snow-covered rooftops on their bellies, getting faster and faster. Partridges are SNEAKY and know just how to trick hungry foxes. And honeyguides are HELPFUL. They help humans to find the sweetest treat in the forest - honey. These are just some of the incredible stories you'll read in this book. With fascinating factual detail and playful storytelling from ornithologist Tim Birkhead and vibrant, personality-filled illustrations from Cat Rayner, this book captures what it's really like to be a bird.

            In Birds and Us award-winning writer and ornithologist Tim Birkhead takes us on an epic and dazzling journey through our mutual history with birds, from the ibises mummified and deified by Ancient Egyptians to Renaissance experiments on woodpecker anatomy, from Victorian obsessio...ns with egg collecting to the present fight to save endangered species and restore their habitats. Weaving in stories from his own life as a scientist, including far-flung expeditions to Neolithic caves in Spain and the guillemot colonies of the Faroe Islands, this ambitious book is the culmination of a lifetime's research and unforgettably demonstrates how birds shaped us, and how we have shaped them.
