In an original and scrupulously researched text, Candace Savage describes the life and behaviours of sixteen representative species of corvids — members of the crow family. Drawing on the most recent research, she suggests that the birds may apply their mental powers to such everyday activities as choosing mates, building nests, teaching their young, searching for food and communicating with each other. Written in an easy conversational style, and supplemented with breath-taking colour photography, this exciting collection of close-up images draws from the work of Erin and Peggy Bauer, Fred Bruemmer, Tom and Pat Leeson, Leonard Rue III, Jeff Foott and Antti Leinonen, among others.

Candace Savage is the author of more than two dozen books, including A Geography of Blood, which won the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction. She divides her time between homes in Eastend and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
