Why is the eagle associated with victory or the hummingbird with paradise? The answers are here in this new and engaging book.

Discover, for instance: Why the cockerel features on many church spires The one sacred bird that symbolises life and peace in most cultures How to dispel bad luck if you see this black-and-white bird The South-American 'devil bird' once thought to be a dragon Birds: lore, myth and legend draws on historical accounts and scientific literature to reveal how colourful tales or superstitions were shaped by human imagination from each bird's behaviour or appearance. It offers an enchanting and different perspective on birds across the world.
