A gorgeously illustrated tribute to birds of all kinds and the fantastic, funny, fascinating things that they do. Birds have lots of ways of communicating: They sing and talk, dance and drum, cuddle and fight. But what does all of the bird talk mean?
Filled with gorgeous illustrations, this fascinating picture book takes a look at the secret life of birds in a child-friendly format that is sure to appeal to readers of all ages - whether they're die-hard bird-watchers or just curious about the creatures in their own backyards.
The granddaughter of ornithologists, Lita Judge has listened to and observed birds ever since she was a little girl. She is also the author/illustrator of Born to Be Giants: How Baby Dinosaurs Grew to Rule the World. She lives in Peterborough, New Hampshire.
"...magical..."--Horn Book “…a fun glimpse at the variety among the world’s birds.”--School Library Journal "With humor and sensitivity, Judge translates the secret language of birds..."--Publishers Weekly “Delightfully straightforward and accessible.”--Kirkus Reviews
