Award-winning writer and photographer Matt Zeigler went afield in the central Alabama bush to produce Wild Alabama. Explore the wonders of birds as exhibited by their feeding habits; mating rituals; defense of territory; and raising young. Also discover little-known facts about their intelligence and the struggles they endure from migration, nature and man just to survive from season-to-season. This fascinating nature experience is illustrated with 150 images and features 15 North American bird species: Northern Mockingbird; American Crow; Northern Cardinal; Song Sparrow; Blue Jay; Canada Goose; Mallard; Great Blue Heron; Turkey Vulture; Red-bellied Woodpecker; Eastern Bluebird; American Robin; Cooper’s Hawk; Red-tailed Hawk; and the Red-Shouldered Hawk.
Zeigler, a 2010 USA Book News Best Books award winner, also features images of Alabama’s diverse flora and landscape; plus some of its rarely-seen mammals.
