BOOK, BIRD SENSE: WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A BIRD
What is going on inside the head of a nightingale as it sings, and how does its brain improvise? How do desert birds detect rain hundreds of kilometers away? How do birds navigate by using an innate magnetic compass? Tracing the history of how our knowledge about birds has grown, particularly through advances in technology over the past fifty years, Bird Sense tells captivating stories about how birds interact with one another and their environment.

Never before has there been a popular book about how intricately bird behavior is shaped by birds' senses. A lifetime spent studying birds has provided Tim Birkhead with a wealth of fieldwork experiences, insights, and a unique understanding of birds, all firmly grounded in science. No one who reads Bird Sense can fail to be dazzled by it. Paperback, 288 pages.

2-BLU-RAY SET, EARTHFLIGHT - THE COMPLETE SERIES
Feel your heart pound as you scramble with snow geese to escape the talons of a bald eagle above North America. Soar with cranes over Venice and the white cliffs of Dover. Sail over South American mountains, jungles and waterfalls with hummingbirds and condors. Circle with vultures high above African plains, and navigate a dangerous Himalayan pass with demoiselle cranes on their way to India. This wondrous aerial spectacle will make your spirits soar!

On this exhilarating adventure, more than 100 bird species were filmed across 6 continents and 40 countries over 4 years. Using strategically placed cameras, including tiny HD cameras placed on the backs of trained birds, this 6-part series captures amazing viewpoints that have never been seen before.
