"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.

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.
