Ever wonder what kinds of birds are visiting your backyard, the park down the street, the woods at your cottage? Lorimer's Pocket Guides are designed for readers--young and old--who want handy-sized guides to help them identify the birds commonly spotted in their area.
With one bird per page, their easy-to-use format features:
* common name and scientific name
* full-colour illustration
* diagram to show size
* calendar showing the months the bird is usually seen
* colour illustration of egg
* diagram of beak
* transcription of the call
* type of backyard feeder
* short description
New, original, full-colour illustrations by wildlife artist Jeffrey C. Domm, created especially for these books, highlight features that make it simple to identify particular birds. A two-step colour bird finder allows readers to find the species they're looking for quickly and easily. These unique bird guides also include lists of birding hot-spots in and around each city, contributed by local birding experts.
