Dec 10, 2017

What do we need to know about the relationship between birds and humans? On the next Your Call's One Planet Series, we’ll speak with New York Times writer Jim Robbins about his new book The Wonder of Birds: What They Tell Us About Ourselves, the World, and a Better Future.

He says one of the most important things birds do is remind us of our deep and abiding emotional connection to nature.
