For easy reference, each entry includes a table of information on scientific name, order and family, features, habitat, distribution, diet and breeding. There is also fascinating text explaining the major characteristics of the featured bird. Presented in a pocket-book size, the book is handy for taking with you when birdwatching. With excellent colour artworks, an at-a-glance table of information and authoritative text, Birds will appeal to anyone interested in the natural world.
