About this title


Discusses the habitat, lifecycle, appearance and habits of twenty-one water birds and examines the risks posed to them by technological civilization

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-- A look at 21 birds found in wetlands across the U. S. Text and art combine to offer a skillful presentation that is by turn energetic, picturesque, straightforward, and descriptive. Brown is at her best, however, when she describes a particular behavior (e.g., the osprey rising from the water). A short chapter is devoted to each bird; carefully chosen words give readers the sense of firsthand observation, while the pictures offer the same element of surprise as experienced while bird-watching. Species are observed from afar, seen close up, grouped within a landscape, positioned in solitary splendor, shown in flight or in nesting sites, or frozen in position for camouflage. Vibrant hues of sunset shimmer over habitats, while dark, shadowy backgrounds emphasize the beauty of the birds, such as the snowy egrets. Themes of the necessity of protecting wetland habitats from overdevelopment and of lessons from the past when many species were threatened by pesticides and the whims of fashion are threaded throughout the text. The table of contents and index provide access for information-seekers, while the format will appeal to those wishing to read the book from beginning to end. A beautiful and informative presentation. --Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ
