The Science Times Book of Birds gathers the best articles on bird behavior and biology from Science Times, offering fascinating new evidence on the minds of birds, for example: that parrots’ intelligence may rank with that of the dolphin and that birds’ brains actually regenerate to store new information. Other discoveries in this collection include the fossil of a seventy-five-million-year-old flightless bird; the meddling ways of in-laws of Kenya’s white-breasted bee-eaters; the practice of siblicide among cattle egrets; and crows’ astonishing tool-making abilities.
