HUMMINGBIRDS, A PORTRAIT OF THE ANIMAL WORLD
By Hal H Wyss
9 x 12 3/4 in. (235 x 325mm) 72 pages. Hardcover. Over 80 illustrations. The hummingbird is truly extraordinary. It is, of course, most famous for its dimunitive size; even the largest of these little birds weighs barely half an ounce; the tiniest is only two inches long and is the smallest of all warm-blooded creatures. But the hummingbird is notable on so many other counts. Its amazing ability to hover in mid air and even to fly upside down, its vividly hued iridescent plumage, its specialized feeding habits, its extraordinary migration patterns, and its unusual courtship and mating rituals make it unique in the realm of ornithology. Along with descriptions of the hummingbird's habits, this beautiful volume offers suggestions for attracting them to the garden. Species from North America to the tropics are depicted in a collection of 80 full-color photographs that capture these exquisite little creatures in all their tiny glory.
