From the beloved songbirds outside the kitchen window to the exotic theatrics of courtship dances among birds of paradise, tender moments inside a tern's nest, or the vivid flash of a hummingbird's tongue--details of bird life and colors from the earliest of wildlife photographs and vintage nature illustrations to masterpiece photos by acclaimed National Geographic wildlife photographers such as Chris Johns, Frans Lanting, Joel Sartore, and Tim Laman. Exquisitely produced and expertly curated, this unparalleled collection of images displays as never before the irresistible beauty, grace, and intelligence of our feathered friends.
