9780061626647: Remarkable Birds: 100 of the World's Most Notable Birds

For the first time ever, here is a highly selective list of the 100 most beautiful, glamorous, unusual, and iconic birds the world has ever known. Some are so rare they are on the verge of extinction, while others are so numerous they are literally uncountable. Some are famous for their looks, and others for their lifestyle. But all have exceptional qualities that make them the most sought-after, cherished, and famous birds in the world.

In order to create the list for this book, birders and conservationists worldwide were asked to nominate their favorite birds, and give their reasons why these should win a place in this book. The final selections are based upon this truly global list.

Published in association with BirdLife International, the world's leading bird conservation organization, Remarkable Birds explains why each of the featured birds is so fascinating, and includes a stunning photograph of each species. From albatrosses to wrens—via cranes and crows, hoopoes and hummingbirds, penguins and plovers, wallcreepers and warblers—Remarkable Birds takes you on a journey of extraordinary discovery.
