About this deal

Their common prey and predators, and other images and symbols most commonly associated with each bird -- such as the distinctive man-made houses built for purple martins or the green swarm cloud of budgerigars in the wild -- are also portrayed, sometimes in insets, sometimes in two-page spreads. Y es que todas las aves tienen una historia que contar, y unas características propias que los hacen únicos y especiales, siendo además, una gran fuente de inspiración para la ciencia, la literatura, y el arte. I don't think I can do justice to just how beautiful this book is - you need it as a physical book, in your hands, because it is so gorgeous. That’s not to say the book itself isn’t good - it’s fantastic and has a ton of good information on in unique bird species.

It's an attractive book just for the pictures but it also provides a great deal of information regarding the variety of birds that share our planet - from the flyers to the swimmers to the runners.

Once again, the book provides a very nice if not too detailed look at the most recognizeable birds from each of the above-mentioned regions.

Each has a story to tell that sheds a light on our relationship with the natural world and reveals just how deeply birds matter to us. The concept seems a bit dated with a personal selection of best birds based on geographic representation, unusual habits and beauty. Flits and swoops into birds you may have heard of around the world – quetzals, kiwis, flamingos, oh my! I'd never heard of the oilbird or the purple-crested turaco before but my world is much the richer for having learned about them here. Birds are shown in their plumage, nesting and on the hunt and at play, and occasionally in their most common interactions with human beings.As the author said, he could likely have easily picked 80 different birds but the ones chosen are gorgeous.

A lot of the credit for this volume, too, must go to Ryuto Miyake, whose full-color depictions of the birds, often shown in situ, are as dazzling as any illustration from the golden age of bird art.

Di solito sugli uccelli preferisco le guide da campo (mi piace dare un nome alle cose), e quindi credevo che non mi avrebbe interessato così tanto un libro contenente descrizioni di una pagina o due su specie di tutto il mondo… e invece mi è piaciuto moolto di più del previsto!Maar Een reis om de wereld slaat me met verstomming: wat een kleuren, wat een variatie, hoe indrukwekkend mooi en boeiend. Dit is een boek dat je niet van A tot Z moet lezen, mag natuurlijk, maar ik leg het boek het liefst naast het bed: om er vogel per vogel van te genieten. For while Mike Unwin does in fact (and fortunately) show the conservation status of and the threats facing the bird species he has chosen for Around the World in 80 Birds, Unwin's criticism and his condemnation of what has caused and is causing avian conservation issues (habitat destruction, large scale hunting and poaching, climate change etc. From the humble Robin to something a little more exotic such as the wonderfully named Resplendent Quetzal, this beautifully illustrated book looks at the lives of 80 birds, their quirks, their lifestyles, and probably.
