Perfect for beginners, but comprehensive
enough for kids already into birds and birding, these
easy-to-follow guides show how to look for birds based
on their color, size, shape, song, habitat, and behavior.
Featuring over 140 species of birds
pictured in over 1,000 full-color photographs, these
guides will help your favorite young naturalist find
and identify birds found in their own backyard -- or
farther afield! But remember, the most important thing
about birding is to have fun, so get out there and
spot some feathered friends.
Jointly produced by DK (publishers of
the Eyewitness series) and the Smithsonian, these guides,
both eastern and western versions, provide clear photo
illustrations which point out important features in
identification of common species. Information on the
home, songs and food of each bird is also given to
aid in identification.
Although created for children, these
books are enjoyed by adults as well.
