In this striking guide, longtime birder Wolf (Birding at the Bridge) shares her extensive knowledge about how to find birds. The book provides 111 unusual but effective and creative ways to bird-watch that readers can implement in their own neighborhoods; there’s no need to travel to exotic locations. The author advises readers to, for example, visit a beautified dump, scan airport runways, find fermented berries, and look around cows and horses. The book clearly demonstrates how any daily activity—shopping for groceries, commuting to work, or anything readers might view as mundane—can become an opportunity to observe the fascinating world of birds. The book is divided into 10 chapters, many with fun and unexpected titles such as “Finding Birds at Their Favorite Restaurants” or “Finding Birds Through Tech Support.” Wolf’s suggestions will enable readers to have more fun while looking for birds, an activity that also offers perks like mindfulness and a sense of gratitude.
VERDICT Wolf’s humorous writing and the striking color photographs throughout this guide make it a standout. All birders, from novices to the ones who’ve been observing and identifying birds their whole lives, can benefit from this title.
