Which bird migrates the furthest? How do birds find a mate? What can we do to help endangered birds? Fully updated for its 25th anniversary, 'The Bird Atlas' answers all these questions and more. This lavishly illustrated atlas takes children on a tour, continent by continent, to meet the birds of the world. Within each section, the book travels through different biomes, such as mountains, deserts, and rivers; and specific regions, from the Mediterranean to the Everglades, Galapagos, and Himalayas. It is packed with beautiful, life-like illustrations of birds from all over the world, with maps showing precisely where they are found. The book also explains the anatomy of a bird, traces migration routes, and highlights endangered species.
