Description

Birds is a beautiful introduction to 75 of our feathered friends.
From the everyday birds we see in our backyards to the rare species that we might never catch a glimpse of, the world of birds is vast and varied. They can be found in every habitat on earth, including penguins in the Antarctic, flycatchers in tropical forests, and flamingos on Caribbean shores.
Using beautifully coloured illustrations, this book showcases a select few from this diverse class of animals. Water birds, including ducks and herons, songbirds, birds of prey, cuckoos, woodpeckers and hummingbirds are all featured to show the range of avian life around us. With information about courtship displays, breeding strategies, nesting habits and egg types, Birds is a handy guide to their lifestyles, habitats and plumage.
