Bird: The Definitive Visual Guide
"I hope that this beautifully produced encyclopedia will not only serve as a celebration of birds but also strongly encourage greater efforts to conserve them before it is too late." -- Dr. Michael Rands, Chief Executive, BirdLife International, from the foreword to Bird
From hummingbirds that weigh less than a coin, to strange flightless parrots, monkey-eating eagles, and dazzling rainforest birds with poisonous feathers, Bird : The Definitive Visual Guide is a sumptuous celebration of the amazingly varied class of birds. Unrivalled in scope for a single-volume reference work, Bird is a must-have compendium for bird aficionados and avian neophytes alike.
With a comprehensive catalogue that describes and illustrates over 1,400 species of bird with introductions to every bird order, special double-page features that showcase the most spectacular birds, a gazetteer of the world's best bird-watching sites, and an audio CD of bird songs and calls, Bird is rich and sumptuous encyclopedia.
Whether you're an amateur naturalists, backyard birdwatcher, or avian aficionado, Bird is an authoritative, comprehensive, and visually stunning guide that will provide hours of enlightenment.
