Available in Stock

Taking ‘genius’ to mean ‘a flair for meeting environmental and social challenges with acumen and flexibility’, Ackerman gives an engrossing account of the intelligence of birds and the different sorts of genius that have made them so successful. In chapters on technical, social, musical, artistic, spatial, inventive and adaptive abilities, the book covers birds ranging from the extremely clever corvids and parrots to ordinary pigeons (whose navigation skills are way ahead of ours).
