From the spectacular plumage of the bird of paradise to the graceful dance of the flamingo, the mating of birds is one of the most captivating events in the natural world. Lavishly illustrated with more than 140 colour photographs, this handsome book explores the phenomenon in detail. Parry's informative text explains the reproduction strategies of different species, the role of birdsong and display in courtship, and the processes of nest-building, egg-laying, and the rearing of young.
