The essential companion to any birder's field guide Birdwatching is for everyone. No other outdoor pursuit yields so much knowledge of nature's ways with so little effort--if one knows what to look for. Birding for Beginners opens the world of birding to the novice in this complete guide to getting the most out of birding. This updated edition includes a new chapter on birding online and features detailed chapters on equipment, identification techniques, birding "by ear," where to view birds, field guides, optics, and other essentials to get the beginner quickly into the field to identify birds. Especially valuable are chapters on bird behaviors such as feeding, flight, courting and breeding, nesting, and migration--informing the beginner not only about what kind of bird is on the other end of the binoculars, but what it is up to as well.
