Internationally celebrated nature writer Candace Savage presents the Corvid family— surprisingly bright, brassy, and colorful birds—in a remarkable collection of full-color, close-up photographs by some of the world’s best wildlife photographers.
"Savage’s hypnotic, intimate lens takes us so close to these birds we can count the feathers on their stomachs, peer down the huge red gullets of their chicks and marvel at their talky, squawky, wondrously communicative throats and beaks."
—San Francisco Chronicle
"With powerful photographic documentation, naturalist Candace Savage examines the lives and behaviors of the highly intelligent corvid family."
"Here is an excellent gathering of intelligence, expert opinion and bird observations, with color photos creating a lavish backdrop."
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, and Crows: Encounters with the Wise Guys of the Avian World.
