The Year of the Greylag Goose by Konrad Lorenz


In 1973, Lorenz retired from the Max Planck Insitute in Bavaria, & moved, with his students & ‘his’ geese to Lake Alm, in Austria. This is the account of the following years, & continuing study of the geese. A really lovely book.(the jacket is a bit chipped at the edges, creased on flaps).

Internally clean, bright, solidly bound. Colour photographs throughout. “Konrad Lorenz is often referred to as ‘father of the greylag geese.’ He has devoted a lifetime to their study. Sharing their lives at close quarters, he has truly entered their skins, and in the process has created one of the most vivid, beguiling, and entertaining documents to have emerged from ethology, the science of which he is co-founder.”
