About the Author

Bill Oddie is a birdwatcher, broadcaster, television presenter, writer, musician and conservationist. Thomas Bewick (1753 - 1828) was an English engraver and natural history author.


"Collective nouns are always pleasing--even when there is little evidence of their having been in close proximity to spoken language. . . . A few collective nouns for birds are still heard, . . . but your companion at the lakeside would be surprised to hear you cry, 'Behold, a posse of herons, ' or see you recoil at a 'dropping of pigeons.' These are included in this stocking-fillerish book, together with a 'soar of kites, ' a 'wake of buzzards, ' and a 'merl of blackbirds.'"--Times Literary Supplement
