What Bird Did That?
What Bird Did That?

What Bird Did That: a drivers guide to some common birds of North America by Peter Hansard and Burton Silver. Ever since the invention and popularization of the automobile one hundred years ago, drivers throughout America have thoughtlessly removed splatters of bird droppings from their windshields and car hoods. They have done this without realizing that each and every splay contains fascinating and valuable information about the bird who did it.
