Birds aren’t just ahead of us in their ability to fly. Warblers can predict natural disasters, jays have memories like twelve elephants and zebra finches can report the weather to their chicks through the eggshell. What’s more, geese are loving adoptive parents. The award-winning conservationist Ernst Paul Dörfler guides us through the fascinating world of birds, which behave towards each other more peacefully and justly than us humans.
An astonishing book, Warm Nests details the remarkable social skills of our feathered friends - from empathetic magpies to monogamous swans and caring raven parents. It is also an enjoyable and unusual appeal to halt the disappearance of native birds.
