9780871569479: Songbirds: Celebrating Nature's Voices

More than half of the world's avian creatures are songbirds. Found on every continent, they brighten forests, jungles, and urban backyards with their colorful feathers and always-colorful musical sounds. But despite their numbers, humankind's unrelenting assault on the environment threatens to disrupt -- and perhaps even silence -- them. As the world's rainforests disappear, hundreds of bird species may perish with them, including many of the songbirds that spend their summers in the United States.

Songbirds: Celebrating Nature's Voices is a bird-lover's reference that examines the behavior of some of the world's most unusual songbirds as well as more familiar species, from warblers and robins to blue jays and finches. It is also a call to action, warning that the songs may soon end if we continue to destroy our natural landscape without respect for its tiny inhabitants.

Lavishly illustrated with more than 100 exquisite color photographs, Songbirds also features remarkable paintings by the renowned nature artist Barry Kent MacKay and rare images of birds that are, sadly, now extinct.
