Better Birding: Tips, Tools, and Concepts for the Field.


Better Birding: Tips, Tools, and Concepts for the Field

George L. Armistead and Brian L. Sullivan

Princeton University Press


318 pages



Aiming to promote the development of a solid foundation for building field skills, veteran birders Armistead and Sullivan explain how to become a good birder: be a good bird watcher, which means preparing for the field, studying for the next venture outside, daydreaming about certain species and hoping for discoveries, and often keeping a list of species sighted over time. Filled with hundreds of color photos and composite plates, the book includes first breeding, breeding strategy, and life span, a natural history note, identification, varieties, and emphasizes the importance of habitat, taxonomy, and behavior in order to create the birdAEs context. Ten chapters are: introduction; waterbirds; coastal birds; seabirds; large shorebirds; skulkers; birds of forest and edge; aerial insectivores; night birds; open-country birds.
