Reader's Digest Edition

Huge hard covered book with dust cover – 415 pages in very good condition

This book brings together a spectacular array of species from around the world. Here are penguins and puffins from the icy seas, owls and woodpeckers from the evergreen forests, meadowlarks, tropic birds, and hundreds more. You'll meet creatures as tiny as the two-inch hummingbird, as tall as the 10-foot elephant-bird, as diverse as the pewees, pelicans and ostriches.

This book is actually two books in one. It opens with a comprehensive description of the diverse lives of birds….there is information on feeding, breeding and migration. IN the second part you'll meet all 176 bird families that have ever lived on earth, including those that are now extinct. The kingfishers, the kiwis, the nuthatches, the mousebirds and 172 other families are covered in intriguing depth and detail.

This book contains more than 1000 spectacular colour paintings by nature artist Ad Cameron, depicting such scenes as aerial combat between golden eagles, cranes performing a wild courtship dance, and cuckoos evicting sparrows from the nest.
