Our behaviour is causing a mass extinction on the planet and birds are one of the many lifeforms suffering. Â Mark Cockerâ€™s new book and the cover article,Â Wings of desire: why birds captivate us,Â in this weekâ€™s Guardian Review Â explores the relationship between humans and birds in practical, cultural and spiritual terms. Â It clearly articulates thousands of reasons beyond the loss of biodiversity for us to make more space for birds in our lives.
