Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Sep 29, 2003 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages
Nature artist Gordon Morrison has created a brilliantly illustrated and informative portrait of the American bald eagle. The main story is told with full-color pictures, taking the reader through the eagle's life cycle - the chicks hatch; are protected and fed by their parents; go through various plumage phases; learn to fly, fish, and hunt; and eventually leave the nest to begin their own families. On each spread, paralleling this main presentation, is a more in-depth and detailed look at the eagles' anatomy, behavior, and habitat. Readers of all ages are sure to gain a new understanding and respect for this majestic and powerful bird.
