With expert advice on bird watching techniques and equipment, feeding and housing birds, protecting habitats, and much more, Erickson guides you through the intricacies of the avian world with a contagious passion for our feathered friends.

Original.

Book News
Science writer Erickson crams a lot of information about birds into this deceptively small book. Mainly using a Q&A format, she answers a huge number of the questions that beginning birders have about feeding and watching birds, bird behavior and reproduction, birdsong, and bird anatomy. (How do birds learn their songs? Is there really a bird that moonwalks?) Readers needing help with bird identification should look elsewhere, but those who want to learn a lot about birds very quickly will not be disappointed by Erickson's volume.
