Written with exuberance and passion and boasting exquisite print illustrations, this guide to the avian world will enchant younger readers and spawn countless future ornithologists.
The sky is splendid with fierce, clever and spectacular birds. From the bitter cold polar regions to the lush tropics, birds have found incredible ways to adapt and survive anywhere. White-winged diuca finches nest high upon freezing glaciers and mightly peregrine falcons circle skyscrapers in busy cities.
What birds can do is extraordinary. The statuesque golden eagle spots prey from kilometres away. You can tell what time of day an owl hunts by looking at the colour of its eyes. With its long, muscular legs, the secretary bird has a powerful kick that is enough to kill large prey like snakes and hares.
Discover which bird is the fastest, the smallest, the cleverest, the most colourful and much more in this beautiful collection. Written by television presenter and president of the RSPB, Miranda Krestovnikoff, and brought to life by celebrated artist and print maker, Angela Harding, RSPB Birds will amaze, intrigue and take your breath away.
