Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now

Bird flight is a mesmerizing spectacle, yet its intricacies remains largely shrouded in mystery for most. Even after over a century of study, certain aspects of bird flight continue to baffle the public and ornithologists alike.

Peter Cavanagh, a dedicated bird photographer, pilot and expert in the fields of biomechanics and anatomy, has dedicated a decade to crafting this remarkable book, How Birds Fly. Through awe-inspiring photography and conversational prose, Peter unveils the complex evolutions and physics of bird flight, making it accessible to bird lovers of all levels.

Peter Cavanagh is a wildlife photographer who has been taking pictures since he was a boy in England. Peter's migration to the photography and study of bird flight evolved from his study of flight aerodynamics for aircraft pilot qualifications; his professional training in anatomy, biomechanics, and high-speed photography; and his love of nature and the outdoors. Peter's images have been included in the Audubon Society's Top 100 Bird Photographs of the Year, he is a member of the North American Nature Photographers Association, and he has guest-curated the exhibit "How Birds Fly" at the Seattle Museum of Flight. Peter lives in the San Juan Islands of Washington State, USA with his wife, artist Ann Vandervelde.
