Description:

In One Wild Bird at a Time, Heinrich returns to his great love: close, day-to-day observations of individual wild birds. Heinrich's observations lead to fascinating questions - and sometimes startling discoveries. A great crested flycatcher bringing food to the young acts surreptitiously and is attacked by the mate. Why? A pair of Northern flickers hammering their nest-hole into the side of Heinrich's cabin delivers the opportunity to observe the feeding competition between siblings, and to make a related discovery about nest-cleaning. One of a clutch of redstart warbler babies fledges out of the nest from twenty feet above the ground, and lands on the grass below. It can't fly. What will happen next?

Quotes:

He can certainly tell a story when there is one but is often content to retain the meandering form of the journals he culls, supplementing his entries with his own sketches, drawings and paintings., The Wall Street Journal

...passionate observations [that] superbly mix memoir and science..., New York Times

...marvelous, mind-altering..., Los Angeles Times

...looks closely, with his trademark 'hands-and-knees science' at its most engaging, [delivering] what can only be called psychological marvels of knowing..., Boston Globe

Narrator Rick Adamson brings a clear, interested voice...He reads with a sense of innocent wonder., AudioFile Magazine
