Wherever you are in the City it's hard not to be aware of the many types of birds to be seen in your back yard or from your balcony. This book is perfect for all budding ornithologists, as it contains clear non-jargon descriptions of our local birds, well-coloured pictures, and good background information. Take care - birding is addictive! You start with a lazy look out the window at a strange bird. Then you go buy your first book, like this one, to put a few names to a few beaks. Next you find yourself buying birdfood and putting up nesting ledges and houses to attract more birds. It's the slippery slope to birdmania, and many enjoyable hours of bird watching. Enjoy!
