The clownish Coppersmith Barbet started him off on a lifelong passion for birds ... and Ranjit Lal has never
looked back since.
In this book, full of quirky, witty, rib-tickling anecdotes you will meet:
The Brahminy Myna who when in love sings like a vagabond minstrel serenading an unattainable princess ...
The Magpie Robin or Mad Mozart that will sing sweetly in the morning and lose its voice in the evening ...
The Grey Partridge that can go off right under your feet like a crazy bird bomb and give you the fright of your life ...
... and many, many more birds, each with their own personalities, habits and little idiosyncrasies.
Ranjit Lal is an Indian writer. He has written fiction and nonfiction for children and adults. Among his other books are The Caterpillar Who Went on a Diet and Other Stories, When Banshee Kissed Bimbo and Other Bird Stories and The Battle for No. 19.
