In North on the Wing, Beehler describes both the epic migration of songbirds across the country and the gradual dawning of springtime through the US heartland - the blossoming of wildflowers, the chorusing of frogs, the leafing out of forest canopies - and also tells the stories of the people and institutions dedicated to studying and conserving the critical habitats and processes of spring songbird migration.
Inspired in part by Edwin Way Teale's landmark 1951 book North with the Spring, this audiobook - part travelogue, part field journal, and part environmental and cultural history - is a fascinating first-hand account of a once-in-a-lifetime journey. It engages listeners in the wonders of spring migration and serves as a call for the need to conserve, restore, and expand bird habitats to preserve them for future generations of both birds and humans.
