Classifying Birds by Andrew Solway

What makes a bird a bird? How is a swallow different from a flamingo? What is the smallest bird? Classifying Living Things investigates how and why we group animals. Each book focuses on a particular class of living things, looking at the key characteristics that set its members apart from those of other classes. Discover how classes of living things have evolved, and how species have adapted to suit their environments. Find out why certain animals may show some characteristics of a particular class, but actually belong to another. Classifying Birds looks at the amazing class of flying, feathered animals. Find out how birds are grouped into orders and how each one is different from the rest. From water birds to perching birds, from giant ostriches to tiny hummingbirds, discover what makes birds so special.
