Book Overview

Accurate, current bird science presented in an intriguing, highly illustrated way.

Birds do the wildest things (And you thought all they did was fly...) In "Bird Brains, " learn how birds use sound, color, and dances to communicate with each other, and camouflage, dive-bombing, and projectile vomiting to discourage predators. They build nests with sticks, stones, feathers, vines, mud, mucus, saliva, and more. Full-color illustrations showcase these cool behaviors.

Did you know that...

-birds are smart? Crows watch traffic lights in big cities so cars can break open hard nutshells.

-birds are strong? Raptors can withstand G-forces of more than 27 Gs when they swoop down to capture prey. That's three times more than a fighter jet pilot can stand without passing out.

-birds are gross? Parent birds feed regurgitated food to hatchlings.

A whole world of wonder awaits any inquisitive child
