Where Do Birds Live? by Claudia McGeheeClaudia McGehee brought the glory of the prairie to life in A Tallgrass Prairie Alphabet and explored the wonders of the woodlands in A Woodland Counting Book. Now this award-winning artist focuses on the birds of the United States, brining children and their parents closer to the habitats and lives of birds from the Pacific coast to open rangeland to the cityscape of Manhattan. McGehee introduces us to fourteen representative habitats, giving each its own double-page spread that features a signature bird. She devotes one page of each spread to depicting the bird in the full complexity of its complete habitat, at home in its environment with other animal companions; the other page describes and illustrates its nesting, feeding, soaring, and paddling lifeways. Highlighting ideas for preserving and protecting each habitat and its inhabitants, McGehee also provides ways that children can make their own backyards safe havens for birdlife while they learn to enjoy the magic of birdwatching. Claudia's birds include bobolinks on the Tallgrass prairie, common ravens in the Pacific rainforest, brown pelicans on barrier islands in the Gulf of Mexico, scarlet tanagers in the north woods, red-cockaded woodpeckers in longleaf pine forests, greater roadrunners in the south-western desert, and roseate spoonbills in red mangrove forests. Her energizing, engaging illustrations create worlds of vibrant colour that ring with the calls and songs of birds across the panorama of American landscapes.
