About this book

Engaging account by an entomologist and birdwatcher of the interrelationships between birds and insects. Emphasis on life histories and behaviour.
'It would never have occurred to me to look at a book about bugs, whether they are associated with birds or not, but I've got to tell you, this book is fascinating.' Pete Dunne, NJ Audubon Society

The Birder's Bug Books is an unusual yet highly engaging thinkpiece devoted to selected topics in natural history...Few readers are likely to come away from [Waldbauer's] book without acquiring significant new facts and perspectives. Natural history books designed for non-professionals often repeat a familiar nucleus of established lore, while many scientific books are so narrowly focused as to be inaccessible to non-expert readers."The Birder's Bug Book" demonstrates that there is still much to be learned from the traditional naturalist's approach and that there is still a place for wide-ranging, articulately written, and thoughtful nature writing.--Rich Cech"Birdin" (10/01/1999)
