From colossal condors to polychromatic peacocks, The Atlas of Amazing Birds celebrates winged creatures through joyful watercolors and well-researched, humorously told tales of their habits and habitats. Some birds migrate thousands of miles, others display showy mating rituals. Some survive in extreme environments, others are fast, brave, or big! Organized by continent, the book features maps of migratory patterns across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia, North America, South America, and Antarctica, where our feathered friends live in all sorts of interesting places--in gardens, amidst waterways, and along byways.
Matt Sewell is an avid ornithologist, and this is his fourth book about birds. He lives in Shrewsbury, England, and is also the author of The Colorful World of Dinosaurs.
