Description
Feathers--possibly the most amazing body covering in the entire animal kingdom. No other covering does all that feathers do. From the delicate down feathers that keep birds warm to the sturdy flight feathers that allow birds to soar, these marvelous structures are something to admire. This coffee-table book is filled with more than 230 stunning, one-of-a-kind pictures by award-winning photographer Stan Tekiela, and it promises to delight as it walks you through the world of feathers. How do feathers keep tiny chickadees warm in winter? Why aren't Blue Jays actually blue? How do the feathers of owls help them hunt? Featuring birds from across the United States, Feathers will season your understanding and enhance your enjoyment of birds.
