The Profit of Birding
Bryan Bland has led thousands of birding tours to more than 70 countries. On one such trip to India a bemused waiter asked "Where is the profit in birding?" Bryan is famed as one of birding's greatest story-tellers and he uses his book to answer the question emphatically.
In short, there is more to birding than just birds, although they clearly provide a great deal of interest and pleasure. In addition there is history, dramatic scenery, location filming as well as world politics, all featured in this light-hearted examination of the profit of birds. Birders and non-birders alike will enjoy this humorous, anecdotal narrative.
