Yo he podido conocerlo un poquito mejor, gracias a “La vuelta al mundo en 80 aves”, un precioso libro que he ido leyendo a ratitos, y que de una manera muy atractiva y entretenida, hace un recorrido por 80 especies de aves de todos los rincones del planeta; desde el tejedor de Namibia, que construye bloques de apartamentos en medio del desierto, hasta el ánsar indio de China, un ave migratoria que atraviesa el Himalaya dos veces al año. They can sing the most beautiful songs, shriek the eeriest cries, create the most stunning nests, dance the funniest mating dances and so much more!Wildlife author Mike Unwin takes a world tour of 80 birds with exquisite illustrations from Tokyo-based Ryuto Miyake. Oh and finally, I also think that Around the World in 80 Birds should be including distribution maps for each of the included species, for one, simply for general knowledge, of course, and for two because some of the birds being showcased in Around the World in 80 Birds actually do not only appear in the countries and areas about which Unwin is writing (and it would thus be nice if Around the World in 80 Birds would for example visually show how the northern mockingbird also ranges into Canada and that nightingales are common in much of Europe and not just in France, and well, with migratory birds, showing their wintering grounds as well as where they breed via maps is not just interesting and informative but is also rather important regarding possible conservation issues). I think at least 50% of these short bird essays ended by mentioning that the birds are at risk of extinction due to habitat or food loss, global warming, or harmful human intervention. That little nitpick aside, it’s a fantastic book and definitely worth checking out for any other bird lovers!

The writing gives a lot of interesting information on the history of the birds and how people relate to them.Genuinely unsure how I've become some sort of go-to reviewer for books about birds, but I 100% love it, especially when it brings gorgeous, informative books like these into my inbox!
