Arctic Tern Migration

by Rebecca Hirsch

Part of a Series: Animal Migrations.

“Of migratory birds, Arctic terns are the long-distance champs.” This volume has a casual tone but an information-rich text and large color photos (some cover entire spreads). Readers will be fascinated by Arctic terns, small birds that travel incredible distances. A migration map shows the locations of the birds’ wintering and breeding grounds, and chapters cover physical features, breeding, migration journeys, and other related topics. A spread discusses how people and a changing climate are threats to Arctic terns. Final pages include “Types of Migration,” a glossary, further information recommendations, and an index.
