Weird Birds by Chris Earley


Weird Birds by Chris Earley

Some birds look bizarre. Some behave that way. In almost all cases, their appearance has an important function - in evolution or every day. This colourful book exposes more than 50 strange birds, preening, stretching, and showing their strange bodily adaptations. Weird Birds features: Beautiful photographs that show the birds in sharp, clear detail; Informative captions that provide fascinating details about the lives of these intriguing creatures. Available in hardback and paperback, the book will appeal to middle school students exploring topic ideas, younger students interested in wildlife and advanced readers who enjoy picture books.


From the Andean Cock-of-the-Rock to the Secretary bird to Atlantic Puffins and Asian Paradise Flycatchers, Earley's birds and descriptions are highly amazing.--Lee Littlewood Lodi News-Sentinel (11/04/2014)
