About the Author:

Pierre Gingras

From Booklist:

This book is much more fascinating than a simple field guide to identifying birds. Gingras writes about birds' feathers and bills; senses of sight, smell, and hearing; love life; and copulation and incubation. He discusses hygiene, migration, songs and calls, breathing, and flight. In the process, he gives readers some astonishing facts: for instance, a whistling swan has 25,000 feathers, some birds take "ant baths," peregrine falcons reach speeds up to 62 m.p.h., green herons sometimes fish by tossing bait onto the surface of the water to attract small fish, and barn swallows make up to 1,200 trips to gather enough mud to build their nests. Charming color photographs and black-and-white drawings augment the text. An ideal book for bird lovers. George Cohen
