Bird watching, the observation of live birds in their natural habitat, is a popular pastime and scientific sport that developed almost entirely in the 20th century. Find out how to get the most enjoyment from bird watching with this practical audiobook guide packed with proven tips and suggestions.
Birding is a versatile sport that can be either done with or without others. If you are seeking companionship, then birding can be a great social activity. You can share your interest with friends, family, or even join a birding club.

Meet the dummiest
Heard of Books for the Dummies? This one is for the dummiest! I cannot believe such NOTHING gets published!
Do not buy
This book is full of useless information on birding publications. A total bait and switch. No useful tips on actually birding.

An expository paper
This book “read” like a high school writing assignment and the narrator was a beginner as well. Not a significant amount of information either until a detailed explanation of backyard bird counting in a later chapter.
