Description
It is widely thought that birds evolved from small dinosaur species, but did you know that a bird is born knowing how to make its nest? Or that birds use sound more than any other animal? From the large and flightless ostrich to the tuneful nightingale, this book introduces one of the world's most diverse groups of animals. Here are strange creatures like the paradise flycatcher, whose nest is glued together with spider webs, as well as the more familiar peacock, flamingo, and cockatoo. Describing the physical characteristics, habitats, behaviors, movement, feeding habits, and life cycles of these fascinating animals, for readers 9 to 12, each two-page spread focuses on a single topic, vividly illustrated with 5 or 6 captioned color photos.
