MRS MOREAU'S WARBLER: How Birds Got Their Names
The words we use to name birds are some of the most lyrical and evocative in the English language. They also tell incredible stories: of epic expeditions, fierce battles between rival ornithologists, momentous historical events and touching romantic gestures. Moss shows how these names reveal as much about ourselves as about the creatures they describe.
