From cardinal reds to bluebird blues, the colors of birds delight us with their brilliance and variety. But for birds, colors serve important purposes. They send messages, they attract mates. They answer questions and much, much more. In Birds of Every Color, renowned science author Sneed B. Collard III paints a dazzling introduction to bird colors, how they are made, and their roles in our world.
'A superb introduction to the brilliant world of avian coloration. Short and simple does not mean without depth and accuracy. Sneed Collard has materfully distilled and rendered accessible a vast and complex knowledge of bird coloration.' -Geoffrey Hill, Professor of Biology at Auburn University and author of National Geographic Bird Coloration
