Have you ever wondered if birds get tired of flying or short of breath, or why they sing? Do you know how fast a Peregrine Falcon can fly or how the Arctic Tern knows when it’s time to migrate? Why are flamingos pink? The Book of Birds is a thorough introduction to the fascinating world of our avian friends, covering everything from anatomy and the physics of flight to social habits and habitats. You’ll meet thirty-one of the most common birds in North America, as well as the birds in our Bird Hall of Fame, including the smelliest and smallest birds in the world. The study guide includes comprehension questions, diagrams, and enrichment activities, as well as worksheets for your own field observations. Our Birds Flashcards will help students practice identifying birds on sight. Pair with Tiner’s Exploring the History of Medicine for a full-year science course.
