Jeremy Mynott: Birdscapes

January 17, 2019

Why do people like some birds, but not others? Why do folks swoon at a crane or an owl, but cannot muster an ounce of interest in a sparrow? Why do birders chase rarities? These are just some of the basic questions posed by this episode returning guest: JEREMY MYNOTT, birder, writer, and former chief executive of Cambridge University Press. His book BIRDSCAPES: BIRDS IN OUR IMAGINATION AND EXPERIENCE asks some of the most basic questions to get at why we find birds so beautiful and interesting.
