The New Birder's Guide to Birds of North America (Paperback)
|Author: Bill Thompson|
From the Publisher:
What a new birder needs is a field guide that shows most of the birds she?s going to see?so that she?s not frustrated?but that doesn?t overwhelm with rarities she almost certainly won?t see. This is that book. Covering 300 of the most common birds in the United States and Canada, this guide has just the right amount of information about how to identify birds, where and when to look for them, what they sound like, and how they behave.
The New Birder?s Guide is based on the popular Young Birder?s Guide, with the same easy-to-understand descriptions, maps, clear photos, drawings of common and interesting behaviors, and fun ?Wow!? facts for each bird. New in this guide is expanded information on birding gear, tips on improving birding skills, and why some ?common knowledge? about birds just isn?t true.
