Summary
Ostriches are the biggest birds on Earth. Not only that, they can run distances at about the same speed as a car on a city street! These adaptations are extraordinary, but other birds have even more bizarre adaptations! From gizzards to the many colorful mating displays, bird adaptations are covered in fun, engaging detail throughout this volume. The main content addresses curriculum topics such as animal body systems, life cycles, and more with an emphasis on the most fun information out there about birds and their odd adaptations
