A look into the lives of selected bird families touching on a variety of subjects such as how they have adapted to a variety of habitats, some that carry out unimaginable quests for food, a contrast of birds that are colorful and others that are not, and how their long past history is viewed today. Observing birds as living organisms has always interested Dominic Sherony. Through stories and a wide variety of sources, Mr. Sherony hopes to give his audience a different perspective on birds, perhaps one that will allow his listeners to see birds in different ways than they are accustomed.
