Overview

Covering 600 bird species from around the world, Birds: What’s In A Name? includes explanations for names for everything from avocets (these birds resemble a French lawyer, or L’avocat, with their black-and-white livery) and Chaffinches (its scientific name, coelebs, means ‘celibate’ a reference to the fact that males and females often gather in separate flocks in winter), to the Great Bustard (Otis tarda means ‘slow whiskered bird’) and the nightjars (Caprimulgus being a reference to the ancient belief that these birds drank the milk of goats).
