Pigeon City Safari by Isabel Thomas


Pigeon City Safari by Isabel Thomas

Who needs to fly to Africa or visit a safari park, when there is so much wildlife on our doorsteps? This book examines pigeons and discusses where city pigeons live, what they eat, what dangers they face, and why they like living so close to people. Special spotter's clues symbols highlighting key pigeon behaviours and features are used throughout the book to enable readers to go on their own city safari once they have finished reading the book.
