Birds are “busy” animals. Their days are full of activity, and in this book, little children get to see a few birds doing what birds do. They will see a bird “nibbling” on some food, and an eagle “dribbling” water as it drinks. They will see a pink spoonbill “stretching” and a duck “stepping.”

With a very simple rhyming text and wonderful – often funny – photographs, this board book is sure to be a firm favorite with little children who like birds.
