Publisher's Synopsis

Matt Sewell takes you on a world tour, exploring the most amazing birds on every continent

'No budding ornithologist should be without Matt Sewell's Atlas of Amazing Birds… sumptuous illustrations and brief captions tell us all we need to know.' The Telegraph

Matt Sewell, creator of Our Garden Birds, presents his personal selection of the most amazing birds from around the world. With witty descriptions and dazzling illustrations of every bird, this book is a super-colourful, song-filled, strange and stunning celebration of bird life.

Did you know that the bald eagle holds the record for the world's biggest nest - weighing more than two tons? When the elf owl gets into trouble, it plays dead rather than fighting? The Adelie penguin can hold its breath for six minutes and leap up to three metres out of the water?

Discover these and many more fascinating facts in this fabulous and beautiful book. Every bird chosen to appear in this book is amazing in its own individual way - birds that migrate thousands of miles, have strange and showy mating rituals, survive in extreme environments, are brilliant builders, are super-fast, super-brave or super-big!

Sections on each continent - Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia, North America, South America and Antarctica - include maps to pore over. Travel the world to see magnificent eagles, resilient penguins, tiny hummingbirds, towering ostriches, stunning peacocks and many more.
