    Lots of books have been written about Shakespeare’s birds, but back in Crows of Shakespeare was published. The author and illustrator was Jemima Blackburn (nee Wedderburn), who accompanied each image by the appropriate crow-related quotation.

The Birds of America is a book by naturalist and painter John James Audubon, containing illustrations of a wide variety of birds of the United was first published as a series in sections between and , in Edinburgh and London.

    Four Birds of Noah’s Ark: A Prayer Book from the Time of Shakespeare. As the Black Death ravaged London in , in the midst of societal chaos and tragedy, playwright Thomas Dekker wrote Four Birds of Noah’s Ark, a book containing fifty-six prayers for the people of London and all of England/5. A list of poems by William Shakespeare William Shakespeare, regarded as the foremost dramatist of his time, wrote more than thirty plays and more than one hundred sonnets, all written in the form of three quatrains and a couplet that is now recognized as Shakespearean.

    The birds therefore have been now divided into certain natural groups, including the foreign and domesticated species, to each of which groups a chapter has been devoted; and I have thought it desirable to give, by way of introduction, a sketch of Shakespeare’s general knowledge of natural history and acquaintance with field-sports, as Brand: Library of Alexandria. Birds, including doves, crows, falcons, ravens, nightingales, and larks flutter through the lines of Shakespeare's Romeo and are often used to reinforce Shakespeare's theme of light.
