Fascinating fact boxes and top tips for young birdwatching enthusiasts. There are handy hints on planning birding activities all year round and practical advice on how to get involved in conservation. With lots of colour photos it's certain to help you to identify birds. It will even tell you how to identify the many different bird songs that you'll be able to hear if you listen.

A message from Nick Baker, President of the RSPB Wildlife Explorers:

'The great thing about birding is that anyone can do it. One of the best ways to get started is to spend time with someone who knows more about birds than you do. But they're not always easy to find - so that's where this book comes in. This book can be your 'birding friend'. Its two authors have been birding for a long time. They remember what it was like to be a beginner, so they know exactly what problems you might come across. Take their advice within the covers of this book, and you'll soon become an ace birder yourself.'
