With an air of admiration and curiosity, Charles Constant narrates this concise, yet surprisingly dense, exploration of birds. Just as the title suggests, the audiobook covers birds from tips to tails and offers significant insight into their behavior and survival strategies, including their response to growing pressures from humans and climate change. Constant's upbeat tone and clear articulation, including slowing down while explaining detailed concepts, prevents listeners from becoming overwhelmed. One minor fault is the lack of distinct pauses between subject headings, which appear regularly throughout each chapter. There's a lot to digest here, so the quick transitions can sometimes seem abrupt. Listeners curious to learn more are encouraged to seek out the book and its many pictures and diagrams, which further enhance the narrative.
