Description

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly? Or to live high in the tree tops? Or perhaps you’ve wondered what birds do when no one is looking?

Birds have some of the most extraordinary – and peculiar – behaviours on the planet.

Ravens love PLAYING games. In winter, they sledge down snow-covered rooftops on their bellies, getting faster and faster.

Partridges are SNEAKY and know just how to trick hungry foxes.

And honeyguides are HELPFUL. They help humans to find the sweetest treat in the forest – honey.

These are just some of the incredible stories you’ll read in this book. With fascinating factual detail and playful storytelling from ornithologist Tim Birkhead and vibrant, personality-filled illustrations from Cat Rayner, this book captures what it’s really like to be a bird.
