All the World's Animals "SONGBIRDS", Torstar Books, Project Editor: Graham Bateman, Copyright 1985, 2nd printing, 160 pages. Hardback, oversize book with extraordinary color illustrations of songbirds. Almost 60% of all living species of bird are included in Songbirds or Passerines. Book is informative and has many contributors from around the world. The color illustrations and photos though are so outstanding it will keep you glued to the book for hours. The outside bright blue boards are rubbed on the corners but the book is clean, tight and no odors, folds or writing. Would make a good gift for a birder or a lover of nature.
