Overview

With her enchanting watercolor images and hand-written text, artist and author Maryjo Koch has recorded the most remarkable facts about birds from all over the world. The extraordinary structure of a bird's wing, the sturdy complexity of its nest, and the beauty and perfection of its eggs are revealed in illustrations of remarkable accuracy and sensitivity; The artist's text - which covers topics such as migration, courtship patterns, and evolutionary adaptations as well as details about specific birds - is drawn from her own observations in the field as well as from literature, scientific writings, and mythology; She shows us, and describes, the graceful flight of a swallow, the nectar-sipping of a hummingbird, the long migration of an arctic tern, the architecture created by the bower bird, the grounded gait of an ostrich and kiwi, the shape and camouflage of a plover's egg, and hundreds of other marvels in the lives of birds. A glossary of terms and a source list for additional information are included.
