This beautifully bound collection is not just for birders, though birders will love it. Ann Taylor's humorous and evocative reflections on bird watching and the people who do it are no more just about birds than Thoreau's Walden is just about a pond.
Taylor chronicles her fascinating life as a curious and devoted amateur bird-watcher and nature-lover who has traveled the world in pursuit of her passion. Along the way, she also delves into many subjects of interest to the over 50 million American birders -- identification ... songs ... names ... migration methods ... and the watchers themselves.
