Of-Birds-and-Birdsong

If Ernest Hemingway were to write about ecology and nature, he would have written like Krishnan. - The Indian Express Of Birds and Bird song is a masterpiece of great nature writing, natural history and wit at its best, by one of Indias greatest naturalists ever. A must read for anybody who is a nature enthusiast or who simply loves prose and is surely a collectors delight! - The Hindu You should read this book if you know nothing about birds and equally, if you marvel at them or enjoy watching them and listening to their calls. - Outlook India is home to over a thousand species of birds ranging from glittering sun-birds, peacocks and pheasants through to unassuming inhabitants of town and countryside like crows, sparrows and pigeons to those that are rare and threatened like the Indian Bustard. In this book, many of them are brought to vivid life by one of the country's greatest naturalists and nature writers. M. Krishnans prose is studded with evocative descriptions of nature, literary allusions, stylistic flourishes, humor and most rewarding, precise observations and original insights into over a hundred species of birds in a variety of habitats. This is a work that will delight bird lovers of every stripe. As Zafar Futehally, one of the country's best known ornithologists, says in his forward, every piece in this collection has something even for the seasoned naturalist and even his description of common events holds your interest because of the writing.
