book_Kaufman_Guide_to_Advanced_Birding

Kaufman Field Guide to Advanced Birding
By Kenn Kaufman

Expert Kenn Kaufman’s guide for experienced birders has been completely rewritten to reflect what birders need now.Birders can memorize hundreds of details and still not be able to identify birds if they don’t really understand what’s in front of them. Today birders have access to almost too much information, and their attempts to identify birds can be drowned out by excess detail. The all-new Kaufman Field Guide to Advanced Birding takes a different approach, clarifying the basics and providing a framework for learning about each group. Overall principles of identification are explained in clear language, and ten chapters on specific groups of birds show how these principles can be applied in practice. Anyone with a keen interest in identifying birds will find that this book makes the learning process more effective and enjoyable, and that truly understanding what we see and hear can make birding more fun.

The 2nd best guide to birding in southeasten Arizona... Just kidding. This book is just as good as our Tucson Audubon Society Guide.
