"There is the mammal way, and there is the bird way," says author/narrator Jennifer Ackerman at the outset of this highly engaging, highly informative audiobook. It turns out there's quite a bit more to the bird way than most people imagine, and Ackerman offers an impressive collection of examples of advanced bird communication, reasoning, mating and parenting strategies, and community action. Her opening chapter, with its wonderful lists of distinctive birds and their unique behaviors, is a special treat, hard to resist listening to a second time. Ackerman proves to be an especially effective narrator who brings grace, assurance, and unmistakable enthusiasm to her subject. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
