Birds – The Inside Story offers an absorbing insight into the lives of southern African birds, exploring a range of interesting topics that include: • The mechanisms of flight – did you know that albatrosses can fly thousands of kilometres without flapping their wings? • Intricate courtship rituals – did you know that some males offer females ‘nuptial gifts’ of food to strengthen the pair bond? • Nests and nest building – did you know that Sociable Weavers build nest ‘mansions’ that can accommodate up to 500 birds at one time? • Ingenious strategies for survival – did you know that African Jacana chicks hide from predators by submerging themselves in water, leaving only their bills sticking out? • The mysteries of migration – find out how birds navigate using the sun, the stars and the magnetic field of the Earth.
