A beautiful keepsake book for children with lavish illustrations by much-loved artist, Angela Harding and produced in partnership with the RSPB. 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. Look up! 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.

Author Biography

For as long as Miranda Krestovnikoff can remember, she has always loved to be outdoors. Her passion for wildlife started early on by observing animals in the wild and keeping a veritable menagerie at home in the laundry room! Miranda studied Zoology at Bristol University and, even before graduating, secured work at the BBC Natural History Unit. Miranda later became a presenter and this enabled her to travel and present conservation stories from around the globe. She has presented BBC's Coast, and appeared on BBC's The One Show, River Walks, Curious Creatures, Big Week at the Zoo, Animals at Night, Celebrity Eggheads and more. Miranda is also involved with the National Trust and WDC. She is currently president of the RSPB. Angela Harding is a fine artist specialising in nature and wildlife screenprints as well as lino and vinylcuts. Her beautiful prints appear in a huge range of galleries and have also been featured in Gardens Illustrated, BBC Countryfile and Country Living Magazine.
