Recipient of the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for Bilingual Books. Las Joyas Voladoras son los "Visita flores" o colibríes, y desempeñan un papel esencial de la mayor importancia, porque sólo ellos pueden polinizar muchos de los árboles y arbustos que forman parte de la naturaleza. Sin embargo, últimamente los números de estas pequeñas aves se han disminuido porque hemos invadido y destruido sus hábitats, pero este libro explica lo que podemos hacer para proteger y conservar este tesoro nacional. En Panamá, se han observado 59 especies de colibríes. Algunos de ellos son migratorios, pero aún así juegan un papel significante durante su permanencia en el país. Este libro es el trabajo del ingeniero Ralph Dessau y representa el resultado de su estudio de 8 años de los colibríes de Panamá, con 49 fotografías en color y una lista de los colibríes que se encuentran en Panamá con sus nombres en inglés, español y con su clasificación científica.

But lately the number of these small birds has dwindled because we have invaded and destroyed their habitats, but this book explains what we can do to protect and preserve this national treasure. In Panama, 59 species of hummingbirds have been observed; some of these are migratory, but still they play a significant role while in the country. This book is the work of the engineer Ralph Dessau and represents the result of his 8-year study of Panama's hummingbirds, with 49 color photographs and a list of the hummingbirds found in Panama which gives their names in English, Spanish and their scientific classification.

About the Author:

RALPH DESSAU was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1928. In 1953, he graduated with a Master's Degree in Chemical Engineering from the Technical University of Copenhagen and received a Fulbright Fellowship, which enabled him to spend a year at Stanford University and another year at the California Institute of Technology. Upon his return to Denmark in 1955, he married Carmen, his wife of more than 58 years, and started his career in the International Petroleum Industry, which lasted for 30 years. During this time, he also wrote The Hummingbirds of Caracas and produced a movie, In Defense of the Sea. As an avid photographer, over the years, Ralph devoted his spare time to his favorite hobby: photographing hummingbirds and other wildlife.

Review:

In this loving tribute to his favorite bird, Mr. Dessau guides us through the tiny hummingbird's life: from its incredible flying to its jewel-like feathers. Filled with photographs of these little creatures in action, we can only gape in wonder; and to quote the author, we ask ourselves, "How do they do that?" The answer lies in two languages, Spanish and English, and we come away with a profound appreciation of Nature and all its marvels... Patricia Alvarado, editor
