Book Review: The Unfeathered Bird

This book is what I call a bad weather birding book. It is a great read when the weather makes it hard to get out in the field to go birding. Written and illustrated by a former London Natural History Museum curator (and taxidermist), The Unfeathered Bird by Katrina van Grouw is full of information about the ways in which bird behavior is influenced by the structure of their bodies. It shows what is going on underneath the feathers in rich details with more than 380 illustrations drawn from actual bird specimens.
