Inspired by the RSPB's website, this great new book will launch beginner birders of all ages into the world of birds and bird watching. The book has been split into six sections which detail: principles of identification and tips on making notes and recording; bird watching equipment and field skills; how birds are built, how they work and where they come from; behaviour including breeding, feeding, migration and adaptation; bird habitats and distribution; and, how to help wild birds in your garden and beyond, current threats to birds and how to get involved in conservation.
