Birds of a Feather; Seasonal Changes on Both Sides of the Atlantic
An informative book in which the authors portray the changing seasons in the UK and US, bringing their observations together with some startling results. In the context of their gardens, neighbourhoods and in the larger landscapes, the authors provide month by month accounts of their birding year, commenting on what they see and hear.
They take the reader on walks through grasslands, forests, marshes, estuaries and along coasts and describe the effects of changing weather on flora and fauna, the unfolding of the breeding season, bird counts, the character of birders and bird organisations in the US and UK. They also consider how our world is radically changing the lives of birds and also address the challenges of conservation in the modern world.
