Lyanda Lynn Haupt raised a starling of her own to see if the tale of Mozart and his starling could be true. Her experience brings the legend of musician and bird into our present world where science rules. Yet even today, the song of the starling, but a minute in length, lies at the very limits of human comprehension. Read the book and you will learn why. - David Rothenberg, author of Why Birds Sing and Survival of the BeautifulA completely charming and informative book on the pleasures of keeping one's eyes open. - David Sedaris on Crow PlanetMozart's Starling is a delightful, enlightening, breathless flight through the worlds of Carmen and Star, two European starlings who join their human counterparts in exploring life and music and nature, helping to shed light on the connection between humans and birds-those of us bound to terra firma, and those of us who are free to soar - Garth Stein, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain and A Sudden LightMozart's Starling sparkles with imagination, emotion, and insight. Thank you, Lyanda Lynn Haupt, for showing us the delight and magic of a starling. - Sy Montgomery, author of Birdology and The Soul of an Octopus
