Synopsis

Find Out About Birds with 16 Projects and More Than 250 Pictures by Jen Green

This title comes with 16 projects and more than 250 pictures. It is a lively and accessible introduction to birds: where they live, what they eat, how they hatch, find mates, build nests, and migrate across enormous distances. I features 16 simple-to-do projects that bring you much closer to the world of birds: examine feathers, see how a wing works by making a model of one, build your own bird table and nesting box, and record bird-song. It features more than 250 illustrations include step-by-step photographs and explanatory diagrams. It is a fascinating fact file and learn-it-yourself book, that is ideal for 8- to 12-year-olds for home or school use. From your backyard to the wide plains of Africa, birds are around us all the time. They come in all shapes and sizes - from the tiny hummingbird to the majestic eagle, from the nocturnal owl to the flightless penguin - and each one is perfectly suited to its environment, as this amazing book illustrates. Even the smallest garden bird is fascinating to watch, but it is much more interesting if you know exactly what to look for. Exciting practical projects show you how to use binoculars, build a hide, draw birds accurately, and identify their footprints. Find Out About... is a series for young readers who want to explore the exciting world of science. Each title covers a different topic, bringing the subject vividly to life with vibrant photographs, illustrations and diagrams, making it fun for budding scientists to learn the principles and find out the fantastic facts for themselves.
