Book Overview

Birds of the world are portrayed in all their colorful glory by Tim Flach, the world's leading animal photographer

Radiating grace, intelligence, and humor, and always in motion, birds tantalize the human imagination. Working for years in his studio and the field, Tim Flach has portrayed nature's most exquisite creatures alertly at rest or dramatically in flight, capturing intricate feather patterns and subtle coloration invisible to the naked eye. From familiar friends to marvelous rarities, Flach's birds convey the beauty and wonder of the natural world. Here are all manner of songbirds, parrots, and birds of paradise; birds of prey, water birds, and theatrical domestic breeds. The brilliant ornithologist Richard O. Prum is our guide to this magical kingdom.

   Beautiful gift for the bird lover in your life!
I bought it for my mother for Christmas. She is an avid bird lover and thought it was such a beautiful coffee table book. Photography is absolutely stunning. My only complaint is that it arrived in a big box with little to no padding and the corners of the book were damaged, but that's more of a placing from Amazon during the holidays than anything to do with the book or the seller.
   Not as expected
This black format book will be well received by readers and viewers who like large art photography. Most pictures are head shots with a few showing features such as feathers only. Naturalists who enjoy being birds in their natural surroundings will probably not be as enthusiastic. I am disappointed because I was expecting the latter style of presentation. Another reason for the average rating is that the format requires a constant reference to the book's end to find information about each bird. With the photographs, no information, no even the name, is presented. Therefore, the opinions on favorability will be significantly divided.
   Birds on the wing are my daughter's thing.
I have reviewed several books, but most were partially or completely illustraited. ( ) '' ).
