    This book is split between general anecdotes about animals the author has kept and studied, and specific details about observed behaviors of particular species of animals, notably water shrews, domestic dogs his dog of choice was the Alsatian, a puppy Alsatian is seen here with a cat that looks like a fatter Mooncheese and jackdaws The writing style is light and humorous while still being fascinating about the observed ways animals interact in relatively natural environments There were some similarities between this book and the Gerald Durrell book, The Drunken Forest I read a few weeks ago I enjoyed this book greatly I feel like I owe it a better review than I m going to give it, but I m not feeling especially inspired to get thoughts from inside my head out in to the internets world The authors approach to observing and living with animals he keeps them mostly at his house and property in relative non captivity is to view them on their own terms Even though the animals aren t in their fully natural environment, he goes to great lengths to allow them to freely move about and behave as they naturally would From his observations he shows that many animals have quite remarkable intelligences, especially when the behaviors are studied in themselves and not looked anthropomorphically, he s a big proponent to the idea that a lot of misunderstanding about animals comes from people comparing animal behavior to human qualities I had a lot of fun reading this book I m not having so much fun trying to write a review, so I m going to stop I d recommend this though, and I tried to get Karen to read it but she said she was too busy because of school , or some nonsense like that.One fault I did find with the book I don t like reading that foxes aren t really as smart as everyone thinks they are I ll just keep to my own opinions here and not listen to some scientist I ll treat this fact just like a conservative treats scientists about global warming LalalalalalaAnd in other animal news, but not having anything to do with this book because Raccoons aren t found in Europe, or so I am led to believe if the BBC magazine about nature is to be believed , I discovered last night that there is a raccoon living on my street here in Queens this isn t the raccoon living on my street, I didn t have the time to whip out my camera and snap a picture of him, but this one lives in Central Park.

    Did you know that, when it comes to combat, a turkey fights like a wolf while a peacock fights like a panther Did you know that fish can suffer from brain teasers How about that jackdaws don t innately know to fear their natural predators relying on social learning over instinct Before I read King Solomon s Ring I didn t know any of this.Before I read this book I thought I knew a lot about animal behavior so I was shocked by how much I learned This book was written in the 1950s and every chapter held revelations The prose isn t perfect for the modern ear the result of sixty years stylistic age, a translation from German and a writer who was first a scientist But despite all this, the text proves engaging, informative and clear Lorenz s passion for his work shines through and his sense of humor survives the translation.But most interesting of all is Lorenz himself as close to a real world Dr Doolittle as may ever live His antics with animals mystified friends and strangers including once when he called to his lost pet bird at a train station, causing it to swoop down to him and than once one of his experiments ended in tragedy such as the fate of a large toad he housed with the wrong animals He was a man who loved animals but warned against anthropomorphism and he invented a whole branch of science ethology purely out of curiosity So give this book a read and maybe you ll see the animal world a little different I do Edited 11 20 2017

    raro che io rida di un animale, e quando ci accade mi accorgo poi, ripensandoci meglio, che in realt ridevo di me, dell uomo, di cui l animale mi aveva presentato una caricatura pi o meno spietata L anello di Re Salomone un saggio del 1949 in cui Konrad Lorenz, fondatore dell etologia che ha dedicato la vita allo studio del comportamento degli animali, descrive una parte dei suoi esperimenti con varie specie quali i pesci, le taccole un tipo di uccello , le oche, i cani e i gatti.Il libro, ancora oggi consultato da studenti di etologia e psicologia, si concentra soprattutto sull imprinting, ossia il fenomeno che permette ai nuovi nati di riconoscere come madre il primo essere che vedono Ma tratta anche le abitudini sociali degli animali il loro comportamento in famiglia , in a e come comunicano tra di loro, attraverso gesti e espressioni che si possono interpretare e comprendere La descrizione delle scene della vita dell oca Martina, che individua in Lorenz stesso la sua mamma, sono ridicole ma anche tenerissime.Molte le cose curiose Le volpi non sono affatto astute come si pensa, le tortore, comunemente ritenute buone, possono essere in realt pi feroci dei lupi Le unioni tra le taccole, uccelli simili ai corvi, durano molto a lungo E anche dopo molti anni, il maschio continua ad imboccare la femmina con gli stessi toni sommessi, tremuli di contenuta eccitazione, quegli accenti amorosi che le aveva rivolto nella primavera del loro a e lei a starsene ferma minuti interi a pettinare le meravigliose, lunghe, morbidissime penne dello sposo che le offre voluttuosamente il collo con gli occhi semichiusi e le piume sul capo pi arruffate che mai L anello di Re Salomone scritto in modo molto semplice e senza dubbio interessante Nonostante alcuni dei concetti siano stati rivisti nel tempo, il libro rimane ancora attuale, perch Lorenz, attraverso l analisi degli animali, analizza anche parte dei nostri comportamenti Una sola creatura possiede armi che non sono cresciute sul suo corpo, che non rientrano nella struttura funzionale dei suoi comportamenti innati, e il cui uso non regolato da una corrispondente forza di inibizione questa creatura l uomo.

    This is one of the most wonderful books I ve read in a long time It was recommended to me years ago by a friend who lived on a farm in Vermont He said it was the best book on animals ever IT s so much than that Lorenz was an animal behaviorist who, at times, writes like a poet The translation from German is beautiful The book is laugh out loud funny in places, horrifying in others such as the descriptions of how water shrews or water beetle larvae eat their prey It was written in 1951 after World War I, which Lorenz only mentions in passing I looked him up on the Internet he won a noble prize in 1973 and changed his focus from animals to people However I also learned he was a member of the Nazi Party He served as a medic in the war until he was captured and thrown in a Russian prison When he was released he took his pet starling It s hard to reconcile the gentle author of this book with someone who could buy in to Nazi principles about race He was able to clear his name publicly but I it sadly affected my impression of the book His past was always lurking in the background Still I would recommend it to anyone.

    L uomo che parlava con gli uccelliQuesto libro racconta l esperienza di uno scienziato, etologo, che studia il comportamento degli animali, soprattutto dei volatili e dei mammiferi Una scrittura scorrevole e piacevole, a tratti ironica Memorabile quando narra dei corvi che gli beccano la testa Lo consiglio agli amanti degli animali e per tutti coloro che desiderano gettarsi nelle braccia della natura

    Un bellissimo atto d a verso il mondo animale, accessibile a chiunque e non solo ai naturalisti Riflessioni mai banali sulla natura animale e, di riflesso, sulla nostra.Per tutti quelli che mai avrebbere pensato di trovare interessante l illustrazione del comportamento sociale delle taccole o conoscere le differenze fra i cani discendenti dai lupi e quelli derivanti dagli sciacalli.Assai interessante, divertente e ben scritto.

    Nessuno potr scordare la scoperta dell imprinting narrata da Lorenz in questo suo narrare Il mio non un giudizio sul libro, ma un ringraziamento per l esperienza condivisa e per il piacere ricevuto nel leggerla.

    Lorenz s understanding of animals social rules and behavior is uncanny If it weren t for his detailed explanation of all his observations and how he obtained them I would believe him to be a true Dr Doolittle In addition to his amazing knowledge he is a patient narrator, he introduces the reader to each species with no hurry and eases him into the animal s habitat and social hierarchy By the time the chapter is over you can t help feeling like you ve observed the jackdaws and water shrews with Lorenz and grown familiar with their ways In addition to patience, the famous ethologist is very clear while presenting his findings He s witty and profoundly passionate, I felt like I got to know him as well as the animals He isn t all science, he tells personal stories, funny ones too that made me snicker, while always being extremely respectful His relentless steps to follow the animals of his current observation often brought him into the most ridiculous situations, I have no doubt the city of Altenberg had a very different opinion from my own on Lorenz, probably along the lines of a madman than a pioneer After surprising me with the intricate mechanisms in the de throning of the ruling jackdaw tyrant he stated as follows You think I humanize the animal Believe me, I am not mistakenly assigning human properties to animals on the contrary, I am showing you what an enormous animal inheritance remains in man, to this day This passage clearly stated what had been one of Lorenz s objectives all along in the book One that I had been ignoring behind all the fun facts about animals The insights on human nature are unexpectedly striking and truly thought provoking Although this isn t exactly a page turner I really enjoyed learning everything this book had to offer I don t think I ve ever found such a profound respect for someone in a book as I have for Lorenz in reading King Solomon s Ring His dedication to the study of animal behavior is something I ve never seen before and admire deeply I recommend this to all curious animal lovers, you won t regret it If this hasn t been sufficient to convince you here are some of the most fun and interesting pieces of knowledge that will stay with me long after putting this volume back on its shelf You ll only know by reading the full thing I learnt that large parrots and cockatoos can suffer from boredom the lion is the laziest predatory beast swans in zoos are rendered incapable of flight by the operation of pinioning one wing if you ever wish to buy birds Lorenz recommends a married bullfinch pair as an excellent choice for sweet singing small birds and a starling, or the smaller siskin, for company and affection to the domesticated dog, its owner is the combination of the alpha male of a dog person pack and the affectionate mother contrary to popular belief, even when at the point of starvation a wild wolf will not attack a fellow member of its pack in birds there is no law of attraction of opposites aka sexually mature volatiles may court individuals of the same sex jackdaws know through acquired knowledge their enemies, not by innate instinct, they are quite literally informed through the handing down of information from the old generation to the next jackdaws also go through a period of what a man could only define as engagement and marriage, although no rings are involved here, for obvious reasons cichlids fishes may sometimes skin each other
