Why us?
Dip in and out of this book to discover the collective noun for all sorts of birds. Bound to delight any bird lover or wordsmith, A Conspiracy of Ravens shows how the nouns often reflect the character of the bird they are describing. Each entry is accompanied by one of renowned 18th-century naturalist engraver Thomas Bewick’s beautiful woodcut illustrations and the book has a foreword by celebrated bird enthusiast Bill Oddie.

From a Crookedness of Crossbills and a Bazaar of Guillemots to a Mischief of Magpies and a Paddling of Ducks, each expression brings the birds wonderfully to life.

Hardback. 144 pages. 18cm high.
