About this book

Explores a wide range of bird behaviour including courtship, territorial behaviour, singing, nesting, foraging, flying, feeding, and migration. The emphasis is on leisurely observing the birds that frequent your garden and taking time to spot the different characteristics of each species as they feed, interact, or raise their young, in order to gradually build up a comprehensive understanding of their behaviour.
