Overview

Sea Birds by Julie Murphy

From faraway deserts to neighborhood parks, nature is full of interesting animals. Colorful camouflage, powerful poison, amazing armor, and sharp senses are just a few of the adaptations that help animals survive in their unique environments. Reading about animals and their habitats is the first step to understanding and protecting the world we share. Readers will marvel at the vivid photos of weird, wild, and wonderful animals from around the globe.

Penguins, gulls, and puffins are all seabirds. Seabirds spend lots of time in the water. Some are great at fishing. Others steal their food. Some seabirds fly over water searching for fish. Others can't fly at all. Seabirds looks at how these weird, wild, and wonderful birds survive on land and at sea.
