Editorial Reviews


How Birds Fly is a captivating, non-technical introduction to bird flight. How Birds Fly reveals the mysteries of flapping flight with sequences of high-speed photographs that lead step-by-step through the fine points of take-off, level flight and slow flight. The text is easy to understand and includes a minimum of aerodynamic jargon and anatomical technicalities. There are 68 original photographs of geese, owls, ducks, terns, osprey, ravens and ruffled grouse (including 16 in full color) all taken by the author. How Birds Fly is unique and highly recommended! -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This beautifully illustrated book is a fascinating beginner-level study of birds in flight. It makes an excellent art-reference book. It's strongest point is the series of images showing each stage of motion in the flight of several types of birds. The writing style is merely average, but is useful as supporting text to the graphics.
