Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day is the first Zoology book in this series! It is also the very first Apologia Science book we have ever used in our home!

Free Resources and Ideas to Use with Apologia's Young Explorer Books - Zoology 1
When we first used this book about 7  years ago, the accompanying journals were not available so I had to do a lot of digging and searching for extras.

They now have Regular Notebooking Journals and Junior Notebooking Journals available that accompany this series.

Description for Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day (from Apologia website):

In this God-honoring study of birds, Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day teaches your child about the glorious design and characteristics of flying creatures, including physical characteristics, nesting habits, flight patterns, and more! Your children will learn how to attract various bird species to your yard and identify them by looking at their special physical characteristics, diverse nests, and interesting domestic practices. 

After becoming amateur ornithologists, your children will explore the world of chiropterology, which is the study of bats. They will be able to intelligently share with others the value of bats in our world while exposing the misconceptions that most people have regarding these docile creatures of the night. Your children will then investigate entomology, the study of insects. They will learn to scientifically classify insects they find in their yard by a simple glance at their wings and other important characteristics. In addition to designing experiments with flies, crickets, darkling moths, and caterpillars, they will also learn how to attract and catch insects for scientific study.
