"Without songbirds, our forests would face more insect infestations and our trees, flowers, and gardens would lose a crucial link in their reproductive cycle. Yet migratory songbirds, including wood thrushes, Kentucky warblers, and Eastern kingbirds, are disappearing at a frightening rate. By some estimates, we may already have lost almost half the number of songbirds that filled the skies only forty years ago." "Following migratory birds on their six-thousand-mile journey from the tropics to North America, renowned biologist Bridget Stutchbury leads us on an ecological field trip to explore firsthand the lives of songbirds and the major threats they face. Although some of the threats must be addressed through local and international policy initiatives, there are several things each one of us can do to help save birds, such as buying paper and wood products from sustainable forests, buying shade coffee, avoiding pesticides in our food and on our lawns and gardens, keeping our cats indoors (domestic cats are responsible for a surprising number of bird deaths), and much more. As Silence of the Songbirds shows, we ultimately protect ourselves and our children by taking steps to save songbirds and the environment."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

(Nonfiction, Nature)

I’ve noticed in the last few years and especially in the spring and summer of last year that there are fewer songbirds trilling their calls around our country property.
Since reading Silence of the Songbirds, I have a good idea why this is – not that it makes me feel any better.

Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring is still a classic on this subject, but Stutchbury’s book is an up-to-date consideration of the whole of North America.

These are disturbing facts; I often see in my mind’s eye, even now three years after first reading of them, all those dead hawks falling from the sky over southern fields.

This is a factual essay of dimishing migrant songbirds. The author coveers which birds are decreasing and the various causes of their decline. She also explains why their diminishing numbers affect not just the natural world but our own quality of life in ways such as water quality, food costs and so on. ( )
