The Bird Way



Who has not looked up in the sky at birds and wished they could fly? Jennifer Ackerman has spent a good part of her adult life thinking about and writing about birds and the natural world.  She is the author of eight books including a favorite of mine, The Genius of Birds.  Her latest book is called The Bird Way: A New Look at How Birds Talk, Work, Play, Parent, and Think. I was pleased to talk with her on Arts Express and learn some startling stories about birds .

    • Hi, thanks for asking, Bumdrella. We put out a free monthly Arts Express newsletter where we often feature a transcript of an interview that was done on the radio show that month. I’ll put you on the email list for that. I don’t know that this interview will appear, but if you give me a few days, I’ll see if I can put together a transcript of this one for you and send it to you via email. So look for it in a few days in your email account associated with your wordpress account (the gmail one).
