Here is an evocative, closely observed portrait of terns, as the noted naturalist John Hay has watched these "tirelessly flying, excitable, vulnerable birds" for years on Cape Cod. Celebrating their beauty, Hay describes all aspects of the birds' lives, from threats by enemies (including human beings' neglect of the environment) to mating rituals, the wild tumult of a crowded nesting site, and their long-range migrations.

Industry Reviews

No one brings the world to our senses (and our hearts) as symphonically as John Hay. Like the shorebirds he knows so well, he is forever ahead of us, urging us on to oceanic understandings. . . . More than just 'nature-writing, ' "The Bird of Light" is about the best distillation you can find of the kinds of attitudes that we will ignore at our peril. --Jake Page"
