Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Birds . . . But Were Afraid To Ask
This RSPB-endorsed book answers all those burning questions about
birds that beginners and experts alike may ask themselves as they go
about their birding. How do ducks keep their feet from freezing in
winter? Why don't swallows stay in Africa? Are birds really dinosaurs,
or were dinosaurs really birds? How is it decided whether bird species
should be 'split' or 'lumped'?
Taking a 'questions and answers' approach, each specific question
leads to an answer which expands the theme under discussion, so that
all aspects of bird life and the hobby of birding are covered. The
scientifically rigorous answers together form an impressive and
fascinating body of bird-related information. This highly readable book
will intrigue anyone with an interest in birds.
"Concise and informative, in a chatty everyday style... a great book for dipping into." Birds
"Packed with hundreds of questions that anyone broadly interested in
birds might ask, each one answered in an easy-to-understand manner.
Excellent for anyone, new to birdwatching or not." BTO News
