Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Clearly written by an international team of ornithologists and well illustrated, this is an introduction to birds and birding for people with an interest in the topic but little prior knowledge. Three introductory chapters cover the basics of avian biology, attracting birds to one's yard, and field observation techniques. Arranged by habitat, brief descriptive accounts (one or two per page) of about 200 common North American species make up the bulk of the work. Also included are a well-chosen bibliography, directories of birding hotlines and organizations, and a combined index/glossary. Factually sound and visually appealing, though perhaps not breaking new ground, this is recommended for public and high school libraries. [Another volume in the "Nature Company Guide" series, Skywatching, is reviewed below.-Ed.]-Paul B. Cors, Univ. of Wyoming Lib., Laramie
