Birds: Through Irish Eyes
An exquisite celebration of the birds that frequent and inhabit Ireland’s landscape.
Anthony McGeehan's engrossing narrative informs us about the life and times of the birds that surround us, each with a story to tell. Birds are clever and beautiful, but also vulnerable, especially due to modern farming practices, pollution, climate change and hunting.
A lifetime dedicated to demystifying bird identification, allied to hundreds of stunning images, qualify the author to write from the heart. Covering each bird in a way that distils its essence, passion is never far away, designed to overcome indifference and rekindle a sense of wonder and, the author hopes, ignite fresh recruits.
This book is the birds' moment and, for some, perhaps salvation.
