|Discover a family of birds who are phenomenal fliers but cannot
walk or climb. There is a species that nests at the Arctic Circle and winters
at the lower tip of South America, migrating up to 235,000 miles in its
lifetime. These and thousands more winged wonders are described in fascinating
detail in the Firefly Encyclopedia of Birds.
Authoritative, easy-to-read essays explain mating rituals, historical significance, evolutionary development, and nesting habits. Organized alphabetically by Family, this comprehensive encyclopedia is illustrated with 2,000 colour photographs and location maps. The text is lively, well researched, cleanly organized and completely understandable to non-scientific readers. A Fact File for each bird family lists the relevant data including species, genus, global distribution, habitat, plumage, voice, nest, egg descriptions, diet and conservation status.
With contributions by a team of 100 distinguished zoologists, the Firefly Encyclopedia of Birds is a major reference work for all birders as well as students and naturalists.
