Overview

For readers fascinated by the ornithological world but who know little about birds except for what they see out their window, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Birdwatching is, well, just ducky. Sheila Buff, a birding "buff" herself, introduces novice "twitchers" to every aspect of this fascinating and rewarding hobby: how to get started; what to bring, know and do, and where to go for your first outing; how to identify hundreds of different birds (from raptors and owls to gulls, geese, warblers, and more) by size, color, sounds and behavior; how to distinguish between male and female birds; how to start backyard birdfeeding; how to master bird photography; how to select and use a field guide; how to buy equipment economically; and a nestful more. Readers also get three 16-page color inserts, dozens of black and white photos and line drawings throughout, and a beautiful full-color poster guide for easy reference.
