Become an eyewitness to the 9,500 species of birds that live in a huge range of habitats, from deserts and rainforests to the polar ice caps. This picture-led guide will take you on a visual tour of the fascinating world of birds. Children can learn all about different orders of birds, take a detailed look at individual feathers and beak shapes, and explore behaviour, from fish- and meat-eaters to seed- and plant-eaters.

Throughout the pages of this children’s guide to birds, you can expect to find:

  • A fresh new look; new photographs, updated information, and a new *eyewitness* feature.
  • A visual tour through the topic combined with bite-sized text.
  • Brand new eyewitness accounts from experts in the field.

Eyewitness Bird gives a detailed overview for kids aged 9+ of a fascinating animal species and will encourage them to spot the incredible birds on the wing around you. Using full-colour photographs of different species, feathers, beaks, bird anatomy and their nests, children can immerse themselves in the world of these feathered creatures. Witness the breathtaking moment when a chick hatches from its egg and watch as the young birds grow in their nest to take their first flight.

I have been sent an email telling me that there are now around 11,197 species of bird in the world – this was updated in June 2024! That’s an incredible increase. I’m sure it won’t make this book any less fabulous, but if you want to look at the statistics of animal speices in more detail, you can look at! Andrea
