There are some types of birds that are able to live in a variety of habitats around the world. However, many species of birds, such as the birds of paradise, have adapted and specialized and only live in one habitat, such as the rainforests. Others, such as hummingbirds, have become so specialized that they can only live in very small areas of particular types of rainforests. This title looks at the variety of magnificent birds living in the rainforest - from the toucans and macaws which fly through the canopy while miniature hummingbirds dart from flower to flower. It looks at their homes, food and threats. The book's features include special "links" boxes highlighting the relationships of rainforest birds to those living in other habitats around the world, and "rainforest secrets" revealing amazing facts and stories about some extraordinary birds. This text can be used for the "knowledge and understanding of places" as required for the geography National Curriculum at Key Stage 2. It can also be used for Geography at Key Stage 3, where pupils should study the characteristics and distribution of one major biome, for example tropical rainforests.
