A Place for Birds




North America has almost three billion fewer birds now than it had fifty years ago. It may be hard to believe, but birds are in danger, and they are calling for our help. Sadly, humans are often the source of the harm! What can we do to help save them?

In simple yet compelling language, Melissa Stewart showcases twelve North American birds, from the familiar eastern bluebird to the rare Kirtland's warbler. Her clear narrative shows the threats these birds face, and informative sidebars describe a wide variety of efforts to save them.

In addition, remarkable full-color illustrations vividly and accurately depict the birds within the ecosystems that support their survival. Range maps and additional bird facts are also included.

This nonfiction picture book is part of the prize-winning A Place for... series designed to inform young readers about a wide range of environmental issues and to present ways people can help protect animals and their natural habitats. An ideal choice for young birders, scientists, environmentalists, and nature lovers.
