Recommendation would be a bit strong, as I have not read this!

However, found this on-line & it looks promising. May be of interest.

Wing Beats: British Birds in Haiku

http://www.wingbeats.co.uk/haiku.html

Written and compiled by John Barlow and Matthew Paul, illustrated by Sean Gray, and with a foreword by Stephen Moss, Wing Beats features 323 experiential haiku and 131 species of British birds. Extensive informative texts also explore both British avifauna and the history and intricacies of haiku poetry, considering the relationships between these in a global context.

Just been browsing. Looks pretty good. The photographer only lives up the road from me.

Here's my contribution:

Pigeon, much maligned
Queen. But you can't blame us - you
Shat on my windscreen.


(I am surprised they didn't ask us for contributions actually.)
