Summary "Nineteen poems in a variety of verse forms with accompanying science notes introduce readers to a wide variety of unusual birds."-- Provided by publisher.
Ever wonder which bird has the loudest voice? Which one builds the biggest nest or has the most feathers? Let award-winning science poet Leslie Bulion introduce you to the best and the brightest--and smelliest!--denizens of the bird world. You won't need your binoculars to observe the superlative characteristics of these avian wonders. A science glossary, notes on poetry forms, and resources for further exploration of the extraordinary world of birds are included at the back of the book. Witty drawings by Robert Meganck add another layer of fun to this humorous and informative gallery of the most acocmplished birds on Earth.
