The last passenger pigeon, which once covered the skies of North America, died in captivity in 1904. Common North American Bird Families North America is home to a number of bird species and families. Below, are some of these species. Anatidae is one common North American bird family. This group includes geese, swans, and ducks. There are a number of types of Anatidae and some are more commonly found in more areas than others. For instance, the Canadian goose is typically found in Canada and the northern states in the US. Strigidae is another common type of North American bird. The owl is the kind of bird that belongs to this family. In the US, the Snowy Owl is the heaviest owl, followed by the Great Horned Owl. Another popular North American bird family is the Columbidae. Many people are not too fond of one member of this family, the pigeon. This family does, however, include doves. Many of the birds that belong to this family are found in urban areas throughout the continent. The penguin belongs to the Spheniscidae family, another common North American bird. Unlike many other birds, this family prefers colder climates. Therefore, they are typically found in Northern Canada and Alaska. Apodidae is a North American bird family that spends most of its life flying. Their short legs do not allow them to settle on the ground very long. Swift birds make up this family. Pelecanidae is a popular bird family in North America, but differs from many other birds in that they spend most of their time in the water. Also, these birds have four webbed toes. This group includes egrets, herons, and bitterns. The Phoenicopteridae family also calls North America home. The bird most people are most familiar with in this family are flamingos. What makes this bird unique from other birds is its height; they can stand up to five feet tall! They love warmer climates, such as the Caribbean Islands and Florida.

(back cover) For lovers of birds and trivia, this captivating book features a wealth of fascinating facts, figures, and folklore about our feathered friends. It's beautifully illustrated throughout with colorful artworks, photographs, and diagrams. Over 400 nuggets of information drawn from nature, science, history, and mythology are sure to astound, amuse, and entertain Find the answers to these burning questions: How light is a feather? Are owls really wise? Why do birds migrate? How do they know where to go? Be amazed by the weird world of these winged wonders, from the largest ever recorded egg--equivalent to 220 chicken eggs--to the world's strangest bird, which has claws on its wings Includes practical advice such as how to attract birds to your garden and how to teach a parrot to talk, and encourages a new appreciation of these awesome creatures of the air (front flap) Birds are the most homogeneous and recognizable of all animal groups--they all have feathers and lay eggs, many sing, and most fly. In almost any environment, whether in a town or the countryside, it is difficult not to see numerous types of bird. Of all outdoor hobbies, bird-watching is growing at the fastest rate, and many people enjoy keeping birds as pets. Because birds are colorful, vocal, and daylight-loving creatures, they have been observed and studied for thousands of years. From carvings in Egyptian caves to today's movies and books, bird images are everywhere. And for good reason--they are fascinating. They hear and see much better than humans can, have developed the power of flight, and are found everywhere in the world except the center of Antarctica. As homogeneous as they are, many birds have diversified in amazing ways, from penguins that incubate their eggs on top of their feet for 60 days to brush turkeys that do not sit on their eggs at all, and from the giant albatross of the oceans to the tiny hummingbird of the tropics. A treasure trove of varied information, this book provides the answers to many puzzling questions about our feathered friends. With its entirely random organization, Amazing Birds is perfect for browsing through and stumbling upon unexpected nuggets of fascinating information juxtaposed with strange stories and practical tips.

For fans of Everyone Poops, a hilariously fresh take on POO! A trip to the zoo turns into a very silly discussion about poo, as two siblings wonder what sort of poo each and every creature would do. One day, Daddy Rat announces to his baby rats that he'll be taking them to the zoo . . . but only if they're good, which means no talking about poo! And yet, before the family can even leave the house, the two rascally siblings can't help but wonder . . . what sort of poo would an astronaut do? Shiny, silver, space-age poo! Rocket-powered, weightless poo, and it spins round and round like a planet does, too! Head chefs, balloon sellers, blue whales . . . everyone and everything must have a unique poo, and the siblings simply have to stop and imagine each and every one (much to the chagrin of Daddy Rat, who is getting increasingly irritated with all the poo talk). Once the rats finally reach the zoo, things escalate, because of course each and every animal in the zoo must do a special kind of poo! Finally, Daddy Rat has simply had enough, and is forced to sit down and explain the facts to his curious kids. And when he thinks he may have gotten through to his youngsters, he encounters a surprising (and smelly) twist which will have little rats everywhere laughing out loud!
