I'll admit that I prefer watching birds in real life to reading about them. That said, great books are coming out all the time that vastly increase our understanding and enjoyment of birds. To that end, I enjoy posting my thoughts on the latest and greatest bird books as they appear. Sometimes it takes me a while to write a review, because I want to provide more than just the publisher's blurb. It isn't easy to write a bird book. And it isn't always easy to provide an informed and honest review--but that's what I strive for. Enjoy!
