Exploring the World of Eagles
Paperback-High flight with North America's mighty eagles. Only two kinds of eagles live in North America, the bald eagle and the golden eagle. These majestic birds belong to the same family and share many physical traits and behaviors, but there are also important differences between them. In this fully illustrated introduction, young readers will discover why the bald eagle lives along the coastlines of oceans, lakes and rivers while the golden eagle prefers mountainous regions, prairies and plains. They'll learn about the impressive nest-building skills of these two raptors and their courtship displays, mating patterns and fierce hunting styles. Full-color photographs provide close-ups and action shots of these aerial performers, while the engaging text, sidebars and captions offer insights into the life history of two of the world's most powerful winged predators. Firefly Books' Exploring the World of... nature series was created for younger readers who are eager to learn more about the wild creatures of North America. Each title contains beautiful photographs that depict the animals in their natural habitats, while the highly readable text explores their daily lives — where and how they make their homes, what they eat, how they hunt, how they communicate and how they raise their young.
