The Nesting Season: Cuckoos, Cuckolds, and the Invention of Monogamy

by Bernd Heinrich

Heinrich suggests monogamy among birds evolved in a similar way as humans, as a sexual strategy for rearing young in demanding environments. Drawing heavily on personal observations and evolutionary biology, Heinrich sheds light on a wide array of subjects, from the prevelance of lesbian albatross in Hawaii to the peculiar dynamics of bird sex.
