About this title


Beautiful full-color photographs and a fact-filled text capture the endangered world of the tundra swan, exploring the bird's habitat, life cycle, and arduous migration between the Arctic tundra to the mid-Atlantic coast.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6?A lucid and spirited narrative and well-chosen full-color photographs illuminate the life cycle and current status of the tundra swan, one of North America's two native swan species. Although tundra swans use two flyways for their yearly migration, Lavies concentrates on a flock that migrates from the Chesapeake Bay area to Alaska and Canada, a 4,000-mile trip. In the first few pages, she describes the species' typical feeding, grooming, and flying behavior. The author devotes most of the book to the activities of a research project of which she was a part. The data that the team amassed will help scientists create a viable conservation plan, since legalized hunting and a loss of natural diet and habitat threaten these birds. The pictures show conservationists, scientists, and volunteers, many of whom are children, capturing swans with a net; fitting them with numbered plastic collars; collecting physical data about each swan; and using radio telemetry from a car or airplane to track their activity 24 hours a day. Readers will close the book not only knowing more about tundra swans, but also having gained an understanding of how scientists make a difference in today's complex world.?Ellen Fader, Oregon State Library, Salem
