I'M VERY KEEN TO READ THIS
Tim Low's new book makes an argument for Australia's birds being the noisiest, angriest, most dynamic birds in the world. He also says - controversially, in the eyes of ornithologists in the Northern Hemisphere - that birdsong originated in Australia 40 million years ago. Sounds fascinating. Richard Fidler has a terrific discussion with Tim over on the ABC's Conversations page. LJ, June 27 2014.
