If you are a would-be birdwatcher but don't know where to start, this book is for you
Few books are more intimidating than a conventional field guide. There are simply too many birds in them. This book introduces the reader to Britain's most obvious birds. But it does more than that: it also explains the way that different birds do different things, eat different food, sing different songs and live different lives, and it explains why they are different.
If you are a would-be birdwatcher but don't know where to start, this book is for you. it will help you understand birdwatching: but far more importantly, it will help you begin to understand birds.
