Birds have long been considered the archetypal featherheads, beautiful but dumb. In this original and scrupulously researched text, naturalist Candace Savage describes the life and behavior of 16 representative species of the crow family (corvids) that inhabit North America and Europe, proving that birds are actually quite intelligent. A remarkable collection of full-color photos by more than two dozen of the world's best wildlife photographers highlights this elegant and unusual book.
