Just released by Mercer University Press, A Year of Birds is the first collection of Thoreau’s writings on birds to be arranged by the day of the year, emphasizing the relationship of birds with their environment and the spiritual significance of the seasons. With a focus on the town of Concord, A Year of Birds includes unparalleled descriptions of birds ranging from the red-tailed hawk to the whippoorwill. Special sections are devoted to the now-vanished passenger pigeon and to Thoreau's mysterious "night warbler.”
