Gorgeous photographs and fun info about these amazing birds. I had no idea they were so magical. Great for adults and kids.
I bought this book as a gift for a friend who loves Hummingbirds, the pictures are amazing; there are so many birds featured, who knew there were so many? She raves about the book; it makes a great gift, a great coffee table book, or even just a great book to pick up and look at to remind you how wonderful life is.
