Synopsis

Exploring Nature: Parrots & Rainforest Birds Macaws, Hummingbirds, Flamingos, Toucans and Other Exotic Species, All Shown in More Than 180 Pictures by Tom Jackson

More birds live in the tropics than anywhere else on Earth, and this book reveals every aspect of their lives. Special focus features provide a bird's-eye view - see the courtship dance of the crowned crane, and learn about the many different kinds of parrot, including budgies, cockatoos, macaws, lorikeets and parakeets. 'Did You Know' spotlights provide little-known facts with which you can impress your friends and family. It comes with superb images by top wildlife photographers, as well as detailed illustrations and cross-section diagrams. Young naturalists will be gripped by all the images and information about parrots, tropical and rainforest birds contained in this amazing book. The rainforests and tropics are full of beautiful birds - and this stunning volume reflects and celebrates their exotic world. Some of the most attractive tropical species live high up in the remote cloud forests perched on the sides of lonely mountains. Others live in the open grasslands or savannas, crowded together with different types of animals, in many cases depending upon them for survival. With more than 180 photographs and illustrations, this book ensures that learning about these remarkable creatures is both exciting and fun.
