Noah's dove returning to the ark with an olive branch in its beak was possibly the first bird to become a universal symbol, still potent today. Scripture, literature, folk tales and everyday language are full of bird symbolism, and this collection of stories, poems, reflections and legends will be welcomed by all bird lovers. Gathered from around the world and from throughout history, it is a feathery feast, full of charm and wit. The birds considered include the eagle, dove, cockerel, cuckoo, falcon, kingfisher, owl and many more. The concluding chapter considers that most magical sound, birdsong.
