Summary
Birds may seem to not have a care in the world, but they face arduous challenges every moment of every day. Using only senses and instincts, they have to find food, migrate, withstand the weather, and avoid predators, while competing with each other and countless other species for survival. Today, after evolving for more than 200 million years, birds are challenged by a new set of obstacles brought about by humans. Navigating by smell and changing their songs in noisy cities are just a few of the remarkable ways birds cope with a changing planet. Marvel at their resilience, as ornithologist Roger Lederer shares an insider's appreciation for the most uncommonly common creatures on Earth
