Colophon

Colophon

The animal on the cover of Building iPhone Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is a bluebird (genus Sialia, family Turdidae). Although they are predominantly blue in color, bluebirds can have vivid shades of red dispersed throughout their plumage. Unlike other species of birds, no discernible difference exists in the color patterns of male and female bluebirds.

The birds are territorial by nature and favor open grasslands with scattered trees. Males will identify nest sites among the trees and will try to attract prospective mates by singing, flapping their wings, and then depositing some material within the cavities of those trees. If a female accepts the male’s entreaties and one of the nesting sites, she alone will build the nest for the home.
