The Big Book of Birds
Why is a flamingo pink? Can a parrot talk? Is a bald eagle really bald? The Big Book of Birds opens with introductory spreads explaining how to recognize different bird's eggs, the bird family tree, why different species of birds have different beaks and feathers, and why some birds migrate and travel vast distances every year. Subsequent spreads, illustrated with various habitats, are dedicated to specific varieties of birds, including hummingbirds, peacocks, flamingos, bald eagles, secretary birds, albatrosses, and red-crowned cranes. Some will teach children how to spot different birds within a specific variety, for example how to differentiate the American robin from the European robin. Others explore bird habitats, for example showing how birds adapt to live in cities. Finally, the book invites young bird spotters to protect birds where they live and make their gardens bird-friendly. This is a big, beautiful book to look at again and again.
