Product Description

This is the perfect book of garden bird identification for an absolute beginner with large clear photos. It is the ideal guide to have while watching birds at the bird feeder, in local parks or hedgerows. Short clear descriptions of the key identifying features of each bird are given. Twenty two of the most common birds found in gardens in Britain and Ireland are shown. This book has been designed as a quick and simple way to identify birds for both young children and adults. The author wrote the book originally for her daughter as she was unable to find a simple book that clearly identified common garden birds. With a series of fabulous photos showing each bird and the key differences between the birds clearly described and easily seen in the each photograph, this allows the young or not so young bird watching beginner to know their birds. Soon to be released as an eBook.

This is a beautifully colourful and simply designed book for children and bird lovers of all ages. Stunning photography and brief but concise descriptions of the 22 most common birds of Britain and Ireland. I'd highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars You need this book! 18 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful little book. It's big enough for small people to take it up and enjoy it, but not so big that it's off putting either.
The graphics are bright and colorful, the text is easy read.
It's the kind of book kids will love, long term, you'll end up leaving it in your kitchen and people will flick through it, they may not tell you, but you know it's one of those that people can't not look at.
If there are more on the way, I'll certainly be picking them up for my gang!

This book will help both adults and children to recognise the most common birds in our gardens or at our bird tables. The bright,colourful, full page photos of the birds were a joy to look at even if the birds didn't appear!
