"What It's Like to be a Bird" by David Allen Sibley
A bird book for birders and non-birders alike that will excite and inspire by providing a new and deeper understanding of what common backyard, birds are doing —and why.
David Allen Sibley answers frequently-asked questions in a glorious large-format illustrated volume that covers more than two hundred species from familiar backyard birds--blue jays, nuthatches, chickadees to species that can be fairly easily observed, such as the seashore-dwelling Atlantic puffin.
While the text is aimed at adults — including fascinating new scientific research on the myriad ways birds have adapted to environmental changes — it is nontechnical in natures, making it the perfect way for parents and grandparents to share their love of birds with children.
