Description
Discover the fascinating world of birds—their natural history, behavior, and secret lives. Be an eyewitness to the breathtaking moment when a chick hatches from its egg, the growth of young birds in their nest, and how birds camouflage themselves, fly, hunt, and feed. See inside a nest of baby blue tits during their first few days of life, find out why wings are different shapes and sizes, discover which are the world’s biggest, smallest, fastest, and slowest birds, and much, much more! Comes with a CD and fold-out wall chart.   The most trusted nonfiction series on the market, Eyewitness Books provide an in-depth, comprehensive look at their subjects with a unique integration of words and pictures.
