From the penguins of the Antarctic to the flamboyant inhabitants of the Amazon rainforests, The World of Birds includes fascinating examples from all of the world’s major bird families.
The entries are grouped by order, then within each order by family (and, where necessary, within each family by subfamilies); each family section contains examples of the key species, which are illustrated with beautifully detailed, full-colour artworks. For easy reference, each entry includes a table of information on scientific name, order and family, features, habitat, distribution, diet and breeding. There is also fascinating text explaining the major characteristics of the featured bird.
Presented in a pocket-book size, the book is handy for taking with you when birdwatching. With excellent colour artworks, an at-a-glance table of information and authoritative text, Birds will appeal to anyone interested in the natural world.
