Look Closer: Birds

  We are going to get to know nine different kinds of birds. For each one we will be able to see how big they are (in comparison to a person), get a very clear sense of what they look like, and learn a little bit about their biology and their behavior. Did you know for example that a green woodpecker uses a long sticky tongue to catch insects or that owls eat their prey whole?
  For each bird - a woodpecker, a barn owl, a gallinule, a partridge chick, an oystercatcher, an eastern rosella, a tawny owl, a toucan, and a wagtail - readers will get a fascinating picture of the bird’s world, its habits and lots of interesting facts. Beautiful large format annotated photographs capture many of the tiny details of the bird’s anatomy and show how truly beautiful and unique each species is.
  This is one of the titles in the “Look Closer” Series.
