About the book
On Feathered Wings features the work of seven photographers who have spent their lives camping out, donning waders, and lying in wait for the greatest shots of birds doing what they do best: flying! Selected by birder and photographer Richard Ettlinger, these gorgeous, often thrilling images show hunters, migrators, waterfowl, and songbirds living on the wing: hunting, feeding, fighting, traveling, or just gliding along. An essay by Ettlinger gives an overview of the mechanics and evolution of bird flight. From falcons and eagles to swallows and hummingbirds, On Feathered Wings serves up a rich collection of images that is sure to delight birders both novice and veteran, and anyone who has ever looked to the skies in wonder. When we imagine birds, we think of them soaring through the sky, high above our heads-yet photographs of birds in the air are surprisingly rare.

About the author

Photographer Richard Ettlinger is being featured by the American Museum of Natural History and Harry N. Abrams Books for his six-year project photographing the beauty of birds in flight. AMNH will display over 30 images in a photo exhibition running through May, 2009.
   These startlingly close-up photographs of birds in flight offer a visual comparison and contrast; while each species exhibits unique behaviors, there is a commonality in their movements. Among the highlights are Ettlinger's images of a female barn swallow feeding her young in midair, a cormorant flying away with a newly caught fish, and a pink roseate spoonbill gliding through the air.
