Synopsis

Exploring the World of Eagles by Tracy C. Read

Only two kinds of eagles live in North America, the bald eagle and the golden eagle. These majestic birds belong to the same family and share many physical traits and behaviors, but there are also important differences between them. In this fully illustrated introduction, young readers will discover why the bald eagle lives along the coastlines of oceans, lakes and rivers while the golden eagle prefers mountainous regions, prairies and plains. They'll learn about the impressive nest-building skills of these two raptors and their courtship displays, mating patterns and fierce hunting styles. Full-colour photographs provide close-ups and action shots of these aerial performers, while the engaging text, sidebars and captions offer insights into the life history of two of the world's most powerful winged predators.

Reviews

Each book examines the featured animal's anatomy, senses, mating and family behaviors, communication, diet and distribution.... [Eagles] focuses on bald eagles and golden eagles, aerial fights, molting, binocular vision, monogamy, nest construction, DDT and the birds

-page photos for the most part. Facts and supporting photos are displayed as overlays in bubbles. Pages are glossy and visually rich.... The writing is lean and might appeal to reluctant readers dogged by report assignments.--S. McClendon, Friends School of Atlanta, Decatur, School Library Journal (04/01/2011)
