Birding for Beginnersby Sheila Buff
Birdwatching is for everyone. No other outdoor pursuit yields so much knowledge of nature's ways with so little effort - if you know what to look for. Birding for Beginners opens the world of birding for the novice in this complete guide to getting the most out of birding. The book features detailed chapters on equipment, identification techniques, birding 'by ear,' where to view birds, field guides, optics, and other essentials, getting the beginner quickly into the field and identifying birds. Making Birding for Beginners especially valuable are chapters on viewing bird behaviors such as feeding, flight, feather care, courting and breeding, nesting, and migration - permitting the beginner to know not just what kind of bird it is, but what the bird is doing. Useful appendices on birding organizations, publications, and even birdwatching hotline numbers will encourage and enhance the birding experience.
