Praise for The Wonder of Birds

‘Jim Robbins writes masterfully with lucid prose and deep insight into the human psyche and natural world. In The Wonder of Birds he illuminates the realm of this extraordinary creature that is both a miracle of physiology and a poetic manifestation of our own transcendence.’ —Peter Stark, author of Astoria: John Jacob Astor and Thomas Jefferson’s Lost Pacific Empire

‘Jim Robbins's insight has brought even more perspective into a world I have been discovering most of my life and career with birds’ —Steve Malowski, Aviculturist, Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden

The Wonder of Birds provides a great and well-timed gift: a portrait of the quiet miracles around us each day of our ordinary lives. By sharing his perspective and insights, Robbins reminds us to slow down and to appreciate—and ultimately, to protect—a natural world that is essential for both our physical and spiritual well-being.’ —Michael Punke, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Revenant and Last Stand: George Bird Grinnell, the Battle to Save the Buffalo, and the Birth of the New West

‘A peregrine falcon and a loggerhead shrike, my flying friends, came into the garden the day The Wonder of Birds arrived. I’m surprised they didn’t fly away with it…this exciting book of nature.’ —Diana Beresford-Kroeger, author of The Global Forest
