Description of this Book
Do you know that cormorants are expert fishers? They swim along the water and then quickly dive to catch their prey! Or that great crested grebes fluff up their feathers and break out into a dance to attract their mates? From the easy-to-spot, year-round tufted duck to the summer visitor and cackling fulmar, get ready to find out about 141 different birds. There are so many furry friends to meet in this children's spotter's field guide, published in collaboration with the RSPB, the largest wildlife conservation charity in Europe. You will learn where to find birds, what different bird habitats look like and which birds to look out for throughout different seasons. Including our favourite birds, such as the goldfinch, robin, blue tit, blackbird and even owl, as well as some less common visitors we might not know of, each page contains information boxes about each bird. With beautiful illustrations by Kate McLelland throughout, this is the perfect contemporary pocket guide for young birdwatchers in-the-making and adult nature enthusiasts alike.
