With nearly ten thousand species of birds scattered throughout five continents, bird societies swarm with diversity. People have long been fascinated by birds' ability to fly, yet these magnificent creatures boast a multitude of other remarkable and mysterious faculties. Building on more than 20 years experience travelling and photographing in locations both familiar and remote, nature photographer Gilles Martin offers a collection of images of some of the world's most charismatic birds, from Peru's Toco Toucan, to Australia's blue-winged Kookaburra, to the United States' Bald Eagle.
Through Martin's intense photography and the informative text of Myriam Baran-Marescot, we learn to admire the emperor penguin's capacity for survival, applaud the artistic talents of Oceanic birds of paradise, and distinguish a tree pipit from a meadow pipit. The book is structured around 12 major themes that enable a better understanding of the evolution, migratory habitats, and survival techniques of birds, as well as their place in the world.
