Magnificent. . . . David Tipling’s lush photographs stun and delight with every page. . . . Mr. Tipling’s skill in telling the birds’ stories is broad and unrivaled. Flights of Passage is a privileged look at birds as we’ve never seen them before.”―Julie Zickefoose, Wall Street Journal

A visually stunning, photographically driven celebration of bird migration―one of the great marvels of the natural world

The vast transcontinental journeys made every year by millions of feathered migrants were not known to naturalists before the late nineteenth century. Even today, while cutting‑edge technology such as geolocators and isotope analysis helps us map these journeys in detail, much of the science remains poorly understood.

In this luxuriously illustrated volume, celebrated nature writer Mike Unwin and award‑winning photographer David Tipling highlight sixty‑seven different species of birds from around the world and explore how each has adapted to its migratory cycle. As they bring to life the drama of the Bar‑headed Goose’s journey over the Himalayas and the amazing sixty‑thousand‑mile annual round trip taken by the Arctic Tern between the United Kingdom and Antarctica, Unwin and Tipling offer deep insights into the science, mysteries, and wonders of migration.
