More About Birds Asleep by Skutch, Alexander F.; Schmitt, N. John

"This very readable book by one of the world's distinguished ornithologists reviews the existing literature on bird sleep, and also provides a wealth of new information based upon 50 years of observation in the American tropics and elsewhere. The resulting text is always interesting, often charming, and sometimes poetic. . . . A unique and important book. Highly recommended." --wildlife activist "Abundant anecdotes . . . reveal the author's patient attention to detail and fondness for his subjects, attributes that have made Skutch one of the greatest of twentieth-century bird naturalists." --natural history "The black-and-white line drawings by Schmitt are exquisite . . ." --quarterly review of biology Even though birds spend up to half their lives sleeping or resting, little is known about these behaviors. In Birds Asleep, Alexander Skutch draws on his own observations, as well as the reports of other birders, to offer the first comprehensive survey of the sleeping habits of the world's birds. A longtime resident of Costa Rica, Alexander Skutch is a widely respected ornithologist and philosopher of natural history. His many publications include Origins of Nature's Beauty, Birds of Tropical America, and A Bird Watcher's Adventures in Tropical America, all published by the University of Texas Press.
