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.

Feared by animals on land, sea, and even in the skies, eagles have developed a reputation for being one of the most lethal – and sometimes downright vicious – of wildlife species. When most people think of eagles, they probably think of large fierce-looking birds with sharp elongated claws tearing apart some poor unfortunate rodent – and, unlike other wild animal stereotypes – it's actually pretty accurate. Eagles roam the skies high above most everything else and use their excellent vision to spot unassuming prey on the ground (or maybe in water – some species like to go fishing too). Speaking of species, there are roughly sixty recognized eagle species (collectively known as the Accipitridae family) world-wide and they can be found on all the continents except Antarctica. The vast majority of them come from Europe, Asia, and Africa - but their worldwide presence has landed them on the coat of arms of many countries across the globe including Mexico in Central America, Egypt in Africa, and Germany, Poland, and Austria in Europe. Throughout the rest of this book, we'll learn all kinds of interesting facts about some of the more popular eagle species and we'll explore their habitats, diets, lifestyle, mating, and more.Eagles For Kids Amazing Animal Books For Young Readers Bestselling author John Davidson presents "Eagles For Kids – Amazing Animal Books For Young Readers".

What do they eat? Why are Flamingos pink? A General Non-Migratory Bird Safety in numbers Predators Habitat Chapter 2 Chapter 3 What’s the purpose of such an elaborate courtship? Conclusion Other facts you may not know: In conclusion: Author Bio Introduction Pretty in Pink! Have you ever thought of a bird in such a way? Flamingos are beautiful birds with a dazzling display of pink feathers. Of course pink is not the only color of the Flamingos plumes. The colors can range from red to orange, white and even blue, depending on what they eat! Flamingos live a very social life. They love to have friends and family all around, but not just one or two. Their colony can have hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands at one time. An East African colony is famous for having more than one million members. Imagine how noisy it can get if they all squawk or honk at once! Do you know how old Flamingos are? How long they have existed? The Smithsonian National Zoo says their ancestry goes back for 30 million years, even more! So they are very ancient birds, and one of the oldest species known to humanity. Happily Flamingos are mostly calm, cool and collected. They love to stretch their long legs and ‘wade’ along the shore looking for food to eat. Sometimes they dine on shrimp, specifically brine-shrimp which contributes to their exotic pink tone. Even though human development has reduced their habitat to some extent, Flamingos still thrive in the coastal regions of South and Central America including the West Indies, the Galapagos Islands and other areas. Their colorful species are a beautiful part of life’s great mosaic of natural wonders.

Foxes For Kids - Amazing Animal Books For Young Readers Table of Contents Introduction About Foxes Characteristics Foxes in different folklore and mythology Red Fox Gray Fox Arctic Fox Fennec Fox Kit Fox Swift Fox Bengal Fox Silver Fox Crab-Eating Fox South American Gray Fox Bat-Eared Fox Hoary Fox Introduction Have you heard about the story of fox and the crow where the fox tricks the crow to drop the food from tree? I’m sure you most probably did. Foxes are portrayed as cunning and deceitful creatures in many stories and fables. But is it really true or just a myth? The foxes are most probably assumed as such because of their sneaky ways of hunting for a prey. However, wouldn’t it be exciting to know more about these so call “cunning creatures”? Did you know that foxes show a great deal of love, attention and care when raising their young? Let me recall an incident. It was May 2009. A baby fox was badly injured and was unable to move for he was caught in a snare for 2 weeks until he was finally rescued by the RSPCA. He survived miraculously because of the food his mother brought when he lay there trapped. Heart-warming, isn’t it? Join us as we explore more about foxes, their different species, habitats, behaviors and interesting facts like the one mentioned above. Now we provide you the opportunity to decide on the nature of foxes.

Introduction Ladybugs seem to come and go without being noticed most of the time. They are cute and colorful insects. Insects are a living species that have a 3-part body, several eyes, 3 pairs of jointed legs and 1 pair of antennae. Antennae are long, thin sensors. Scientists that study insects are called entomologists. Entomology is a Greek word meaning segmented or cut into pieces. The study of insects is part of the field of biology which studies all living things. An insect's body has pieces that are joined together. Some animals have a long spine or backbone which means that they are made all in one piece. Insects are a diverse and fascinating form of life which accounts for more than two-thirds of all known organisms. There are approximately 1.3 million named species of insects around the globe. Insect species are still being identified and classified, with a description and a name. Ladybugs have a smooth and delicate shell on the top of their body. Underneath, 6, tiny rough legs work together so that they can walk around. Watch them move, they are slow and steady. They can tip over by accident and they may get stuck. Their stubby legs and their round body will struggle to right themselves. Just give them a little push and they will have their shell back on top. When ladybugs cluster on a sunny, kitchen window they can be a pest. But they are helpful creatures in the garden, field and forest. They naturally feed on the harmful insects that destroy plants, crops and trees. Ladybugs or lady beetles fly and cluster together.
