Every bird is shown life-size in glorious full-color photographs.

Every species profile includes a flight map and key statistics, as well as information about behavior, plumage, and habitat.

Good book with great pictures, but not every species gets a picture and as such, I was a bit disappointed. Still good book for Hummingbird aficionados.

A Gorgeous little book filled with beautiful full color illustrations of both males and females of the species. This book is for anyone who wants a clear up close look at birds we usually only experience as a fleeting blur.
