A Place for Birds
North America has almost three billion fewer birds now than it had fifty years ago. Can you believe it? Birds are in danger, and they are calling for our help. But humans are often the source of the harm! What can we do to help save them?
In simple yet compelling language, Melissa Stewart showcases twelve North American birds, from the familiar eastern bluebird to the rare Kirtland’s warbler. Her clear narrative shows the threats these birds face, and informative sidebars describe a wide variety of efforts to save them. In addition, remarkable full-color illustrations vividly and accurately depict the birds within the ecosystems that support their survival. Range maps and additional bird facts are also included.
