Birds of the Homeplace: The lives of Ireland's Familiar Birds.


Birds of the Homeplace: The lives of Ireland's Familiar Birds

Anthony McGeehan with Julian Wyllie

The Collins Press


232 pages




Inveterate birders McGeehan and Wyllie describe and illustrate birds commonly seen and heard in Ireland, though like the people of Ireland, they can also be found elsewhere in the world. They begin with chapters on birds in general, interesting facts about particular species, and how to watch birds. Among those topics are territory and nests, how blackbirds detect worms, moult, speed of flight, and attracting birds around home. Then they profile about 30 species, often in pairs. Among them grey heron and little egret, great black-backed gull and black-headed gull, great spotted woodpecker, blackcap and whitethroat, song thrush and mistle thrush, and yellowhammer and reed bunting.
