Writer, teacher and mentor JON YOUNG has written a book about looking at birds like no other. WHAT THE ROBIN KNOWS: HOW BIRDS REVEAL THE SECRETS OF THE NATURAL WORLD takes the reader into the world of “deep bird language”.  By learning the behaviors and vocalizations of the birds found immediately around us we can begin to know individual birds. The calls and flights that birds make when a cat on the hunt enters their territory or when a Cooper’s Hawk flies overhead are very different and you can learn these variations.
