Birding Lite is a humorous look at birding, or bird watching, written primarily but not solely for beginning birders and others who are merely interested in birds. It describes how to get started in birding and discusses the equipment and techniques that can help a birder see and identify birds. Birding Lite contains a number of "Fun Facts" about birds and birding, plus "light-bulb" symbols to identify tips for more advanced birders. There is also a chapter describing other books that may be of assistance for continuing to learn. A unique feature is a chapter on whole-brain theory and how it relates to birding, as well as references to the topic throughout Birding Lite.
"[...] Birding Lite is perfect for those who are curious about bird watching or just getting into it. They will find the information required to get started presented in a fun, though shallow, manner. But if you’re already sure that birding is for you and want to dive right in, then I’d recommend skipping this primer and proceeding directly to more meaty guides, particularly Pete Dunne on Bird Watching and National Geographic Birding Essentials."
