About this deal

Yo he podido conocerlo un poquito mejor, gracias a “La vuelta al mundo en 80 aves”, un precioso libro que he ido leyendo a ratitos, y que de una manera muy atractiva y entretenida, hace un recorrido por 80 especies de aves de todos los rincones del planeta; desde el tejedor de Namibia, que construye bloques de apartamentos en medio del desierto, hasta el ánsar indio de China, un ave migratoria que atraviesa el Himalaya dos veces al año. I really enjoyed the expansive variety of birds chosen here, with each entry bringing up fascinating new information about its subject, even when said subject was something I thought I already knew quite a bit of popular information about. This beautiful and inspiring book tells the stories of 80 birds around the world: from the Sociable Weaver Bird in Namibia which constructs huge, multi-nest ‘apartment blocks’ in the desert, to the Bar-headed Goose of China, one of the highest-flying migrants which crosses the Himalayas twice a year. This beautiful and inspiring book tells the stories of 80 birds around the world: from the Sociable Weaver Bird in Namibia which constructs huge, multi-nest 'apartment blocks' in the desert, to the Bar-headed Goose of China, one of the highest-flying migrants which crosses the Himalayas twice a year. This is a wonderful book to add to the collection of anyone interested in either or both birds and avian art.

I’d already loved ‘Around the World in 80 Trees’ in this loose series from Laurence King Publishing and was really looking forward to this one, so much I popped into work on my holiday to pick it up as soon as I found. Wildlife author Mike Unwin takes a world tour of 80 birds with exquisite illustrations from Tokyo-based Ryuto Miyake.

Highly recommend this book for somebody like me who loves nature but doesn't know too much about it outside the mammal kingdom. The other is the Crested Caracara which we were told is really intelligent and curious, but has become a pest in certain areas of Central America, raiding houses by going down chimneys and opening doors and windows.The Resplendent Quatzal is such a beautifully colourful bird linked with a lot of South American mythology and I’ve always been fascinated by it. It felt weird whipsawing back and forth across, for example, the Indian Ocean between entries instead of gradually leading from one region the next, but that's honestly a very minor critique. Organized by region: Africa, Europe, Asia, the Americas, Southeast Asia, Australia, Antarctica, and Pacific islands.

I'd never heard of the oilbird or the purple-crested turaco before but my world is much the richer for having learned about them here. Payments made using National Book Tokens are processed by National Book Tokens Ltd, and you can read their Terms and Conditions here.

Actually, there's a lot of cool and interesting details on 80 different impactful bird species written in an engaging way that really worth the gander.

only some include information on if they’re endangered or vulnerable (or doing well), when the intro makes it seem like that’ll be key in the entries; meanwhile others talk of the social and cultural aspects of the birds (being added to flags, taken on as national emblems, etc) but others are just straightforward facts about the bird itself. Na Een reis om de wereld in 80 planten en Een reis om de wereld in 80 bomen is er nu een boek over vogels. The writing style in this wasn't as quirky and entertianing as in the one about trees, but it was still delivering the facts in a very amicable and non-boring way. This beautiful and inspiring book tells the stories of 80 birds around the from the Sociable Weaver Bird in Namibia which constructs huge, multi-nest 'apartment blocks' in the desert, to the Bar-headed Goose of China, one of the highest-flying migrants which crosses the Himalayas twice a year. From the humble Robin to something a little more exotic such as the wonderfully named Resplendent Quetzal, this beautifully illustrated book looks at the lives of 80 birds, their quirks, their lifestyles, and probably.Mención especial a la belleza de ilustraciones de Ryuto Miyake, que me han tenido embelesada toda la lectura. Desgraciadamente, no somos conscientes de su importancia, y del enorme valor vital que tienen, y ni mucho menos de los peligros a los que están sometidos, y la amenaza que suponemos nosotros para ellos.
