About this book

This beautifully illustrated work brings readers the birding experience - the thrill of spotting a particular bird for the first time, the wonder of witnessing the easy power of a gyrfalcon's flight, or the pleasure of watching the dramatic choreography of a flock of wheeling shorebirds. Well-known naturalist and veteran birder Bruce Whittington takes the reader through a year with birds. Each month offers descriptive information about several birds, along with interesting tit-bits of bird lore, including the incredible story of long-range migrations, how birds fly, their plumage changes, and the life stories of early ornithologists.
