Nests - Susan Ogilvy
An exquisitely illustrated celebration of the hidden beauty of nature and the ingenuity of birds
Susan Ogilvy has painted more than fifty bird nests from life, each time marvelling at its ingenious construction. Every species of bird has its own vernacular, but sources its materials - most commonly twigs, roots, grasses, reeds, leaves, moss, lichen, hair, feathers and cobwebs, less usually, mattress stuffing and string - according to local availability.
Nests will be an essential for all nature lovers
