Book summary

Have you ever wondered how feathers grow, or what owls eat? Did you know Aepyornis titan, the extinct "elephant bird" of Madagascar, laid eggs that weighed 26 lbs? In Bird, all things avian are revealed: feathers, food and fossils, along with courtship, nest-building and camouflaging behaviour. In this Who's Who of the bird world, you'll discover which of our feathered friends is fastest, slowest, largest and smallest, and you'll see for yourself how new-born chicks hatch from eggs. Also included are handy pointers for attracting birds and observing some of the 600 species found solely in Europe. With superb colour photographs and eye-catching text, this highly informative guide will turn an inquisitive child into a knowledgable ornithologist in no time. [via]
