About this book

The Art of Bird Identification will instruct you how to get good, then better, then even better at identifying birds in the field-and have fun doing it. The book features a straightforward approach from Pete Dunne, one of USA's top birders and birding instructors, written in his distinctive style. It includes descriptive information for 75 bird groups to help get the ID process off on the right foot, and gives practical, expert advice and entertaining in-the-field examples of birding successes and common mistakes.

Media reviews

"[...] There are plenty of books on this subject, but The Art of Bird Identification is the best out there for beginning birders. Those with more experience will get much less out of it, but reading anything written by Pete Dunne is time well spent, no matter your skill level.

Dunne’s previous The Art of Bird Finding makes a good companion to this volume. Also, once you’ve become familiar with the identification concepts here and you want to continue growing in the art of bird identification, then I’d recommend Kenn Kaufman’s Field Guide to Advanced Birding and Derek Lovitch’s How to Be a Better Birder. If Dunne’s book is the foundation, then to continue the metaphor, these two are the framework for better identification skills."
