And that an even more extraordinary one million of those have been recovered? Or that the female of a species, not the male, usually chooses a mate? Or that birds are hardly bird-brained but actually quite smart?This friendly, fact-filled browser is perfect for birders, bird enthusiasts, students and the curious.

For example: Do birds have knees? How many feathers does a bird have? Why do many birds have dark wingtips? Why are our songbirds declining? Do birds ever fly backwards?

Does weather affect migrating birds? Why dont ducks feet freeze in winter? Are birds dinosaurs, or were dinosaurs birds? Why dont flying birds collide? Which senses help a bird find food? Do birds sing the same song all the time? Why do birds sing mainly at dawn? Are all eggs the same shape?The authors responses are informative, surprising and often entertaining, and the illustrations are appropriately lighthearted. This lively new book is a birder delight.
