“About Birds” by Cathryn Sill is an introductory guide to birds; and “About Penguins” also by Cathryn Sill, is an introductory guide to penguins. Both are magnificently illustrated by John Sill, whose watercolor paintings never fail to impress and inspire.

“About Birds” explains the things all birds have in common, such as feathers and eggs; it also reveals ways in which different species of birds vary from one another. For example, some birds, such as the oven-bird, build nests on the ground; others, such as the bald eagle, build their nests up high; and others, like the common murre, don’t build nests at all.
