Learn all about 80 of the most common species of bird with this witty and informative book. It's suitable for both birdwatching beginners and nature enthusiasts.
Illustrated and written in a friendly style, the descriptions of each bird describe what makes them unique and tell you what to look for - whether in your back garden or in the wider countryside. This book is packed with facts that will fascinate non-birders and birders alike.
The birds are ordered into broad and straightforward groups (Woodlands, Parks and Gardens, Farmland and Wild Spaces, Birds of Prey, Seabirds etc) and the text explains why each is so significant. This book will also help you recognise when you've seen something rare or out of the ordinary.
I have only just purchased this but so far it seems a very good informative book. I am a novice when it comes to bird watching but I am looking forward to getting out and about using this book as my guide.
