Ravens in Winter. A Zoological Detective Story
NY, Summit, (1989). The uncorrected proof copy of this study of ravens -- their social structures, communication, etc. Heinrich is also the author of Bumblebee Economics, which was nominated for a National Book Award and was the first study to popularize the notion of bees communicating the location of sources of nectar to other bees by means of an elaborate "dance." Blurbs by Peter Matthiessen and E.O. Wilson, who calls this book "one of the most interesting discoveries I've seen in animal sociobiology in years." Small spot on cover; else fine in wrappers.
