Waiting on Wednesday (Apr 21)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My Waiting on Wednesday pick this week is The Bird Detective. (I love birds and I love learning about them in fun ways, so I’m really excited about this one, especially as it turns bird fidelity on its head.) The blurb, via Harper Collins:

In The Bird Detective, the author explains why some birds readily “divorce,” why parents don’t treat their sons and daughters equally, why females sneak in quick sex with neighbouring males and why some adults forgo breeding altogether. Stutchbury writes about the territorial nature of birds and describes their nesting habits, revealing why some species prefer to live in over-crowded groups. Perhaps most important, she illuminates how climate change and other pressures of the modern world are forcing birds to change their habits as they fight for their very survival.

There’s a great article on the book here. The Bird Detective comes out July 4, 2010.

What’s your Waiting on Wednesday?

    How interesting! I wonder what the cover looks like. 🙂 My WOW and review of Day For Night by Frederick Reiken are up at The Crowded Leaf.
