THE BIRD WAY: How Birds Talk, Work, Play, Parent, and Think

How do birds behave? What can we learn of their secret, sophisticated intelligence through observing them in five daily activities — communication, work, play, love, and parenting? Jennifer Ackerman’s talk ranges from the tropical rainforests of eastern Australia and the remote woodlands of northern Japan, to the rolling hills of lower Austria and the islands of Alaska’s Kachemak Bay, and includes audio, video, and spectacular photos by professional photographers and sound recording specialists.

A bird lover since childhood, Jennifer Ackerman has been writing about nature and science for three decades. Her most recent book, The Bird Way: A New Look at How Birds Talk, Work, Play, Parent, and Think, was selected as an Editor’s Choice by the New York Times, a Best Science Book of 2020 by National Public Radio’s Science Friday show, and a Nature Book of the Year by The London Sunday Times. Jennifer has contributed articles and essays to National Geographic, The New York Times Magazine, Scientific American, Natural History Magazine, and many other publications.
