I have only two complaints. First, I wish they included a page on backyard birds to show the more common birds that people will encounter. My second complaint is that the book is really large. It's 3" thick, 13" tall, and 11" wide. I fully understand that this type of book warrants this size, but you may want to keep this in mind if you purchase it. Other than these limitations, this book is a terrific book for your collection or a gift for a bird-lover in your life.
Each of the seven Birdscapes depicted here shows nine to eleven different birds--and plays their calls in a true-to-life cacophony of bird sounds! Since most backyard birdwatchers can only identify about 20 species, this book will more than triple their birding horizons--almost effortlessly!
This book doesn't show all the birds of North America. In fact, it only covers about 10 percent of the birds normally found here. But that's not the point. Birdscapes is a novel way to bring the birds and their world into your living room, and to bring you into their world as well!
