About this title


Birds profiles more than 400 species from all continents and climates.  With a broad sweep from the greater flamingo to the snowy owl, from the golden eagle to the canary, from the puffin to the green kingfisher, Birds is a celebration of one of the most intriguing life forms on the planet.

Grouped scientifically by order and family, each entry includes highly informative, lively text explaining the anatomy, size, habitats, diet, breeding patterns and lifecycle of each bird.  In addition there is a fact box and a map showing the distribution and migratory patterns of each bird.  Each entry includes annotated and beautifully detailed color illustrations and a color photograph of the bird in its natural habitat.

With authoritative, clear text and packed with more than 1600 color illustrations, Birds is an excellent and handy reference guide for ornithologists and general readers alike.
