A WORLD ON THE WING The Global Odyssey of Migratory Birds

by | Read by Mike Lenz

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Migrating birds navigate from one end of the earth to the other, somehow knowing exactly where and when to stop for critical food sources. Narrator Mike Lenz captures the author's wonder and inquisitiveness as he follows godwits, hummingbirds, snowy owls, great knots, and many others on their journeys. The recovery of Swainson's hawks after the reduction of pesticide use in Argentina is a high point; the popularity of songbirds eaten as a delicacy in Costa Rica is a low point. And, of course, climate change is the biggest threat to these finely calibrated journeys. Although there are a few regrettable mispronunciations, Lenz is an enthusiastic and engaging guide who is as impressed by the avian feats and the advances in teeny transmitters as we are.
