The Genius of Birds

Jennifer Ackerman

Overview

Birds are social, artistic, and smart. Sure, pigeons are controversial beings who we either ignore or hate, but most birds actually have a lot to teach us. Through their complex bodily structures and their ability to travel and migrate depending on the season, they're free beings who have complex social structures and inner lives.

In The Genius Of Birds, Jennifer Ackerman sheds some much-needed light on the matter and lets us in on the secret lives of birds.
