    Birding

    I am an amateur birder and this book shows many birds in different color patterns than seen in many of the other birding books that I research with. It is well organized as to where you can expect to find various birds within the different regions and which seansons to look for them in that region.

    Watching a few birds feeding -

    My spouse and I enjoy the antics of a few species of birds in our small back yard space. We just did not know the names of some of them, and now we do. It has been fun to learn some of their habits that were not apparent from their daily behavior. Thank you for a concise, colorful book to keep handy.
