Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

World of Birds is a photographic celebration of the diversity of the planet's feathered inhabitants. Covering the very common to the extremely rare, from tiny hovering jewel-like hummingbirds to plunge-diving gannets, the 300 images illustrate more than 200 of the world's 230 bird families and show the subjects hunting, feeding, displaying, fighting, flocking, roosting, rearing young and much more.
