Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Birdsong (Hardcover)
We bought this book originally at a national trust property after browsing the shop and falling in love with the beautiful illustrations. We then bought a copy from amazon as a gift for someone we knew would love it. As a book to identify birds it is not that useful as it has no photographs and is only organised by location, and isn't that extensive. It is more suited as a coffee table book or a gift for a twitcher who already knows and loves their birds. The gorgeous watercolours are accompanied by the call,of each bird ( although if you haven't heard the call, I don't think you can always work out how they would sound) and a brief description and anecdotes on the facing page. As someone who likes birds but isn't that knowledgeable I love flicking through the pages and discovering something I didn't know whilst gazing out of my garden window.
