Top Customer Reviews
The excellent photographs are accompanied by equally compelling text of the authors studies and views particularly as relates to the perplexing issue of whether these birds have intelligence and the ability to think. For the layperson and scientist alike the observations seem compelling. But the conundrum is that they have not been scientifically verified. Accepting the observations intuitively would roil present narratives of thought and consciousness so profoundly that it is a step that is being approached very slowly, deliberatively, and verifiably. As it should.
But that does not mean that those outside the higher reaches of academia cannot point out what seems to be the obvious and drive the effort towards understanding and clarity, as does this author. And she does so not only in words but glorious photographs so compellingly, that for most it becomes very obvious. Given enough time the slow crawl of science is sure to confirm most if not all of what can already be found in these pages.
Beautiful, well written and talented photography.
There are very few near me and I have to travel to Wales to see them but
I do get Crows and the other cousins in my tiny back garden here in England
