Wings in the Wild
Habits and Habitats of North American BirdsBook - 2001
Spectacular colour photographs and engaging text offer a detailed portrait of birds in their natural environments, offering a glimpse of where birds live and why they live where they do. Six habitats -- arctic tundra, forest and field, ocean, desert and scrubland, freshwater, and seashore -- are covered in individual chapters, each providing a fascinating look at how birds are uniquely adapted for life in their own little corners of the world. Stunning images of songbirds, shorebirds, owls, eagles, seabirds, ducks, birds of the tropics -- species from across North America and the Arctic -- illustrate a wide range of behaviours and adaptions, making this book an invaluable addition to any birder's or nature-lover's library.
