For the fanatic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bill Oddie's Little Black Bird Book (Paperback)
This book is for the fanatic and about the fanatic. It is not about birds. There is a description on what a 'birder' should be called and who will sneer at them by using the term. This is subject matter throughout. It is amusing and a great buy if you are a twitcher or some other list ticker'but there is nothing for those that like to actually watch, rather than spot, birds. As someone interested in the birds themselves, and not 'birder fanciers' or whatever, I found the book superificial, childish and totally uninteresting.
Buy this if you want to laugh at people that spot (is 'spot'the permissible phrase) birds, especially if this is you.
