Our Fabulous Flock of Bird Books

At Greystone, it's no secret we have a special affection for the avian crowd. This kinship applies to animals of all kinds, actually. But birds do hold a special place in our publishing history and our hearts. It's no coincidence that our logo features a crow!

This fine, feathered fascination is visible in our past and present titles and will continue hatching in new expressions well into the future.

To celebrate this connection to corvids and birds of all kinds, here's a collection of some of our favourites from Greystone's ever-growing flock of bird books.
