Preface:

Introduction

Birds are cool. The variety of shapes, colors and sizes of birds makes them stand out. And the fact that most of them can fly causes us to be in awe of these feathered wonders. This book features a few of the over 10,000 species of birds that share this planet with us. It is hoped that these pages will inspire you to watch the birds in your own neighborhood and to connect with the natural world.
