Birds: A Visual Guide (Visual Guides)

From Booklist Birds are found on every continent and in every climate and habitat. There is always a market for new books about birds, and this example from ornithologist and author (The Parrot Who Owns Me, 2001) Burger is a fine addition. Intended as an introduction to the avian world, the book succeeds admirably as a primer on birds. Divided into six sections, the text considers all aspects of birds' lives. Basic anatomy, evolution, physiology, and intelligence are all touched on in the first section, while bird behavior (a specialty of the author), from nesting to display to feeding, is covered in the second. A large section examines the taxonomy of birds, with two to four pages on each group, accompanied by a world map showing its distribution. Habitat, migration, and how birds fill their space are discussed in the fourth section, followed by a look at avian adaptations and lifestyles. The final section, on birds and humans, covers such disparate topics as birds in legend, bird-watching, captive birds, and habitat loss. Beautifully illustrated. Nancy BentCopyright
