Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I found "The Bird Watching Answer Book" to be very enlightening. I found things about birds I didn't know. The book also goes into birds social behavior and what to expect from them in your own backyard. They also encourage you to go out in the woods and observe how different birds behave there as oppose to how they behave at your feeder. Very interesting idea to note the different attitudes of birds in general. This book is much more than, put out some seed and goodies and see who arrives to eat it. If you love birds then you will LOVE this book!
field guide size; lots of assorted bird info; easy to read or as reference
Thought this book would contain color pictures of the different types of birds. It doesn't, so it was disappointing.
