This is a comprehensive visual encyclopedia of the birds of America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Polar regions, with expert analysis of size, shape, plumage, habitat, breeding, nests, eggs and food. The extensive illustrated directory includes puffins, terns, egrets, sunbirds, touracos, buzzards, blackbirds, waxbills, lovebirds, hawk-headed parrots, Eurasian spoonbills, double-wattled cassowaries and many more. It is fully illustrated throughout with over 1800 detailed artworks and photographs, including distribution maps. A natural history section describes the different habitats, the evolution of birds, and how they use flight, habitat, predatory instincts and migration to survive in their environment, as well as offering tips on birdwatching. This comprehensive illustrated encyclopedia of birds of the world presents a fantastic visual guide to many of the major avian species and families, from America's tiniest insect-catchers to the giant, flightless species still living on the African plains. A 420-page directory covering America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Polar continents features full illustrated entries for hundreds of birds, as well as detailing many other related species. The birds are grouped by habitat and type - including oceanic, estuary, freshwater, woodland, open country and urban species. This is an authoritative and sumptuous guide to the diversity of bird life across the globe.
