There are many entertaining and informative books where the author inspires the reader about the nature of birds.
Some books go about scientifically explaining the intelligence of birds and what goes on in their minds. They open up your mind and you get to know that birds are not as dumb as many people assume.
Examples and characteristics of such birds include:
Nutcrackers, which are known to have sharp memories. They are able to remember when and where they once faced danger and in the process avoid such locations. They can also detect any danger that is coming their way and fly away before harm.
Pigeons, which are known to have exceptional homing abilities. They prepare their nests in the most comfortable and best way possible. I also know you have heard about how they were used to deliver messages during the ancient times, especially in Egypt. Their ability to travel as far as 1,100 miles and trace their way back made them valuable messengers.
Crows, have bigger brains and this enables them to systematically plan their actions before execution. In their numbers, they can plan and work out on something successfully.
I bet not many people know that!
There is also an emotional part of Crows whereby they gather and pay respect to their dead. Sometimes they execute other Crows! With reasons only known to them!
Other books explain the many delightful journeys that different species of birds make worldwide, either in search of food or mating partners. And with some mix of captivating stories and scientific facts, this will make a good gift for bird lovers.
