Publisher's Summary

A close look at one season in one key site that reveals the amazing science and magic of spring bird migration, and the perils of human encroachment.

Every spring, billions of birds sweep north, driven by ancient instincts to return to their breeding grounds. This vast parade often goes unnoticed, except in a few places where these small travelers concentrate in large numbers. One such place is along Lake Erie in northwestern Ohio. There, the peak of spring migration is so spectacular that it attracts bird watchers from around the globe, culminating in one of the world’s biggest birding festivals. 

Millions of winged migrants pass through the region, some traveling thousands of miles, performing epic feats of endurance and navigating with stunning accuracy. Now climate change threatens to disrupt patterns of migration and the delicate balance between birds, seasons, and habitats. But wind farms - popular as green energy sources - can be disastrous for birds if built in the wrong places. This is a fascinating and urgent study of the complex issues that affect bird migration.

Great!

A great book narrated by the calm well-spoken author himself. As an amateur birder with only two years experience, I found this book very informative, yet very tangible being a new birder. I’ve relayed many tidbits of information of this book to experienced birders to whom to me are mentors. They also found a lot of new facts and information within the text. Though I must admit, I found myself very anxious and unsettled throughout the book since I have been listening at work in the emergence of fall. I found myself uneasy, constantly wanting to just go out into nature and bird. Spring can’t come soon enough!

Migration Interpreted Beautifully!

Fantastic! Whether you've been able to experience the amazing migration in northwest Ohio or not, you will immediately become entranced with beautiful images of birds, wildlife areas, and the people that flock into this unique patch of our country every spring. This book is also read by Kenn which adds even more value as his passion for birds and bird migration are crystal clear throughout the book. I suggest you read or listen to this book while outside as Kenn has a magical gift of making you constantly want to look up at every avian blessing that catches your eye!

Birds, birds, birds!

Enjoyed a look into a praiseworthy devotion to birds and all that comes from that - including conservation of habitat, thoughtful use of wind for energy, and hope for the future. Rich, thought- provoking and inspiring.
