Identifying birds is a deeply rewarding and sometimes challenging pastime, but it can be difficult to know where and how to get started. Beginning with the premise that most people already know more than they realize about birds, this guide taps into observational skills we already possess—plus a bit of common sense—to teach the identification process. Written in a conversational style and illustrated with more than 100 photos, this "12-step program" starts with the basics and builds logically into a manageable framework that can guide beginners—and old pros—as they explore the world of watching, identifying, and enjoying birds.
"Identifying birds is a science and an art. These leading masters of the craft share a wealth of inside knowledge in this gem of a book. If you're a birder at any level of experience, I guarantee this book will improve your skills in the field." —Kenn Kaufman
