Birds with Personality: A Guide to 50 of the World's Most Beguiling Birds (Hardcover)
Birds with Personality is a fun gift book that takes you around the world through the eyes of some of the most charismatic bird species on the planet. Across Earth’s diverse ecosystems – from the deserts of Mexico to the rainforest-blanketed mountains of Papua New Guinea – birds have found remarkable ways to survive against vast odds. Featuring author Georgia Angus' stunning, lifelike illustrations, this book will introduce you to 50 such species, with information on each bird's size, diet, migration patterns, behaviors and conservation concerns, plus distribution maps. The featured birds vary from the tiny zunzuncito hummingbird, who weighs only two grams, to the enormous wandering albatross, who can circumnavigate the Southern Ocean three times in a single year. From dancing birds of paradise, to fish-beguiling herons, fiery Adelie penguins and fruit-loving Dracula parrots, this book will whisk you away to visit distant lands where you can observe the most iconic birds in the world, and appreciate them for their beauty and brilliance.
