What the Robin Knows: How Birds Reveal the Secrets of the Natural World. A few years ago I had the great pleasure of reviewing Jon's earlier Advanced Bird Language CD set, and made me much more aware of what was going on in the world around me, changing how I walk through the woods and look for birds, and see the world through their eyes. This new book expands on that series with additional information, stories, visuals, and a companion CD of important bird and animal sounds.
I plan on spending a good bit of time with this book over the next few months, and look forward to providing a more thorough review and to discussing the book at greater length. But more importantly, I'm excited about the greater understanding and enjoyment of nature that I always get from Jon Young's way of interacting with birds and animals.
For additional insight into what is in store for us all in this new book (available May 2012), here's a bit more from Jon.
