About this book

Teaches how to begin and improve birding, what to look and listen for, and how to make sense of what is seen and heard. A unique visual component shows actual field guide pages and how to read them, while another compares the same bird in photography versus artwork and explains how to use both for species identification.

Chapters discuss the pleasures of birding, equipment needed, how to read range maps, birds' physical features, how to identify birds, and identification challenges.
