Feathers―possibly the most amazing body covering in the entire animal kingdom. No other covering does all that feathers do. From the delicate down feathers that keep birds warm to the sturdy flight feathers that allow birds to soar, these marvelous structures are something to admire. This coffee-table book is filled with more than 230 stunning, one-of-a-kind pictures by award-winning photographer Stan Tekiela, and it promises to delight as it walks you through the world of feathers. How do feathers keep tiny chickadees warm in winter? Why aren’t Blue Jays actually blue? How do the feathers of owls help them hunt? Featuring birds from across the United States, Feathers will season your understanding and enhance your enjoyment of birds.

Stunningly beautiful throughout, "Feathers: A Beautiful Look at a Bird's Most Unique Feature" is a 'must' for all ornithologists, as well as very highly recommended for the non-specialist general reader with a passing interest in the feathered beauty of birds. Replete with all manner of facts about feathers, "Feathers: A Beautiful Look at a Bird's Most Unique Feature" will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to personal, community, and academic library collections. It should be noted that "Feathers: A Beautiful Look at a Bird's Most Unique Feature" is also available in a Kindle edition.--Carl Logan"Reviewer's Bookwatch" (01/01/2015)
