Tim Low in Conversation with Richard Fidler

Naturalist Tim Low says Australian birds are noisier, more aggressive and more intelligent than in any other country in the world.

Tim is a biologist, environmentalist and prize-winning writer, and co-editor of Wildlife Australia magazine.

His latest book reveals some startling facts about the unique nature of Australian birds - they are distinctive and powerful, and exert more influence on forests than any other birds.

Recent research has confirmed that the world's songbirds originated in Australia. And of all the animals, it seems that their sense of beauty is the one that most closely aligns with ours. Where Song Began is published by Penguin.
