An illustrated atlas to the birds of the world - whether they swim, run, or fly!
Explore the world of birds with this magnificently illustrated atlas.
Which bird migrates the farthest? How do birds find a mate? What can we do to help endangered birds? Fully updated for its 25th anniversary, The Bird Atlas answers all these questions and more.
This lavishly illustrated atlas for children is not your average guide to birds. It takes children on a tour, continent by continent, to meet the birds of the world. Within each section, the book travels through different biomes, such as mountains, deserts, and rivers; and specific regions, from the Mediterranean to the Everglades, Galapagos, and Himalayas.
The Bird Atlas is packed with beautiful, lifelike illustrations of birds from all over the world, with maps showing precisely where they are found. Lots of books can tell you that toucans live in the Amazon rainforest, but this book shows where in the vast habitat you could spot the species.
Every continent is introduced with an overview of the ecology, climate, and landscape, and the typical and record-breaking birds that live there. The book also explains the anatomy of a bird, traces migration routes, and highlights endangered species, providing a complete introduction to our feathered friends that will fascinate every budding ornithologist.
