Spot 50 Garden Birds covers 50 different British garden birds from the nocturnal barn owl and tawny owl to the plump robin and house sparrow. Illustrations of each species are clearly labelled and accompanied by useful information and detailed fact files. One of our top British bird books for kids aged 7+, this illustrated guide will help young birdwatchers to identify species.

Useful and practical features in Spot 50 Garden Birds include:
• A garden bird species list for kids to tick off once spotted. This task gives kids the opportunity to 'collect' each species and record their progress.
• Practical details, such as scale, and tips about where and how to find them mean children have all they need to identify different species in the great outdoors.
• A brief glossary defining important vocabulary such as plumage, fledgling and talons, to ensure kids have a strong understanding of these scientific terms.
• An introduction with a clear explanation of a bird's anatomy and tips about how to attract birds to your garden.
• Useful annotations and labels push children not only to identify each species, but also to make detailed and sophisticated observations about them.

Discover amazing garden bird facts such as:
• Male and female barn owls usually mate for life and both parents look after the chicks.
• Cuckoos lay eggs in dunnock nests. The dunnocks are unaware they are incubating an intruder. After hatching, the cuckoo fledgling throws the dunnock chicks out of the nest.
• British swifts spend winter in Africa, where they follow the rains. After rainfall, insect populations boom, providing a good food supply for these birds.
