It has been said that no other group of beasts arouses as much interest as birds. Bird Facts is an irreverent encyclopedia of everything you’ve always wanted to know about birds, a number of things you didn’t want to know, and even more things that no one has ever known before. Learn about the ritual dances of the Albatross, why the Common Rubber Duck has few natural predators, what passes for yahtzee on Roadrunner family game night, why you shouldn’t eat the Pitohui, and so much more! Also included is the bonus Bird Fiction, “The Dodo’s Oblation.”
You’ve never read a book like Bird Facts. Read it.
