9780061136856: Between the Wingtips: The Secret Life of Birds

We see birds every day, yet we know surprisingly little about them. In this book, photographer extraordinaire Brutus Ostling presents images of particularly interesting, thought–provoking and amusing aspects of the life of birds. The text and captions provided by bird expert Magnus Ullman complement the stunning photographs.

The feathered "cast of characters" profiled is international in scope––from Sweden and the Antarctic to the deep forests of Canada, the wetlands of the United States and Spain, the deserts of Mexico to the savannahs of Tanzania: Ostling capture the grace and beauty of nearly 250 different species.

Full colour throughout, this portfolio of the best of our feathered friends makes for an amazing collection. Sure to be sought (and bought) by bird fanciers worldwide.

About the Author:

Brutus Östling is a freelance photographer and publisher. A member of PhotoNatura, he has contributed photo features around the world. His unique sense of composition, light, and the bird's personality make him a unique bird photographer, and he has been awarded "Nature Photographer of the Year" in his native Sweden. This is Brutus's second book for Collins, following Between the Wingtips (2006).



Magnus Ullman is one of Europe's most distinguished ornithologists. He has contributed to various ornithological journals since the 1980s, and has written two books and coauthored another about rare birds in Sweden. For the past twenty years, he has led bird tours throughout the world. A self-taught ornithologist, he is still an active bird-watcher, especially near his home in the South of Sweden.
