Posted by: Jim Williams under Bird books Updated: July 1, 2014 - 6:06 PM

Bright Wings: An Illustrated Anthology of Poems about Birds, edited by Billy Collins with paintings by David Allen Sibley, Columbia University Press, paperback edition, 268 pages, $16.95. When I read the hardcover release I wrote, “An intelligent assembly of poems that take us places where prose cannot go.This little book is a reminder that everything important about birds can’t be found in guide books or scientific papers.”
