About this book

Into the Nest uniquely presents familiar birds in unfamiliar ways. For each species group, there are images of the male and female, nest, nestlings, feeding time, and the fledglings as they take their first leap. The featured birds include songbirds, urban birds (such as raptors and pigeons), water/sea birds, and owls, all common in most areas of North America. Into the Nest begins with the fundamentals of nesting behaviours and explains why different species approach nesting in different ways. It goes into species-specific detail with amazing photographs of the entire nesting cycle and captions that explain exactly what readers are seeing.

"[...] With the combination of text and pictures this book takes you on a real journey through the stages of these 'family lives' and I would recommend it to anyone looking to expand their knowledge in the area or just wanting an interesting read with some gorgeous photography."
