Big Book Of Birds
Why is a flamingo pink? Can a parrot talk? Is a bald eagle really bald? This follow-up to The Big Book of Bugs opens with introductory spreads explaining how to recognize different 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 bird, including hummingbirds, peacocks, flamingos, bald eagles, secretary birds, albatrosses and red-crowned cranes.
