Summary
What kind of intelligence allows a bird to anticipate the arrival of a distant storm? Or find its way to a place it has never been before, though it may be thousands of miles away? Or precisely imitate the complex songs of hundreds of other species? Or hide tens of thousands of seeds over hundreds of square miles and remember where it put them six months later? Maybe genius is a better word. Incredibly informative and beautifully written, Jennifer Ackerman's book richly celebrates the triumphs of these surprising and fiercely intelligent creatures
