About this book

In 2005, when the first Beat about the Bush was published, it was an instant success and everyone wanted more. Instead of simply reprinting Beat about the Bush, Trevor Carnaby decided to expand the content – and publish two separate titles: Beat about the Bush: Mammals and Beat about the Bush: Birds. Now, in response to overwhelming popular demand, Trevor has completely revised and updated the original favourite comprehensive book. Beat about the Bush: Mammals and Birds Made Easy answers everything you ever wanted to know about birds and mammals, including the questions you didn't even think you had: Have you ever wondered why birds have feathers? Or how they don't fall off branches while sleeping? Have you ever wanted to know why animals walk in line, how they see at night, or why they have the colouring they do? Beat Beat about the Bush: Mammals and Birds Made Easy is the most comprehensive bush and field companion available. In addition, it is set in a question and user-friendly answer format. The result is an insightful reference book in a style that appeals to novices, birders, tourists, bush enthusiasts and field guides alike.
