Have you ever wondered why birds do the things they do? The wildlife book, “Why Birds Do That,” by Michael Furtman has the answers to 40 common questions that people have about birds.
For example, some birds stand on one leg because they actually find it relaxing and the reason birds bathe is the reason why anyone bathes: to get clean. If you’ve wondered why they can sit on high voltage wires and not get electrocuted, well, you’ll find that answer in the book. (Hint: it has to do with their small size.)
The book has over 100 color photographs to illustrate many of the questions and it is written in language that everyone can understand. The book will be of interest to avid birders as well as occasional backyard birders who want to know why birds act the way they do.
Some of the other bird related questions answered in the book include: why do they sing, why are their beaks different, why do they migrate, why don’t their feet freeze in cold weather, why do they fly, why do they eat what they eat, and why do they fly in flocks.
