The Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behaviour Hardback
by David Sibley
This work is a follow-up and companion volume to the "North American Bird Guide".
It looks in detail at all aspects of bird behaviour, ecology, taxonomy and conservation, considering each of the 80 American bird families in turn.
The introductory sections cover ecological and biological concepts such as anatomy, aerodynamics, evolution, migration, habitats and population dynamics.
The volume is illustrated throughout with David Sibley's artwork, and the text, from a team of 44 authors, draws on a variety of ornithological experience. 'Hot on the heels of his recent highly lauded The North American Bird Guide, David Sibley has released this companion book.
It's as masterful as its predecessor...packed with information and lavishly illustrated with Sibley's engaging artwork...Those planning a trip to North America - or those with an armchair interest in the birds found there - will find much to enjoy in this book.' - Birdwatch
