Synopsis

Birdwatcher by David Burnie

Become a nature activity adventurer! Get expert tips and advice on birdwatching and try over 30 cool projects. Create a buffet of breadcrumbs and bacon rinds that will attract birds to your garden or make a hanging bird feeder out of an old plastic bottle. Also includes a handy spotter's guide, making identifying birds a breeze - whether you're at home or on the move.Each title in the series includes an introductory spread listing essential equipment and handy tips and advice on how to get the most out of studying nature. Birdwatcher lets you get a closer look at bird behaviour, such as understanding the way birds communicate with each other through calls and songs, as well as more practical tasks like making a bird table. The nature activities follow, with each project clearly described and its purpose explained. Double-page flaps fold out from the jacket providing a photographic spotter's guide , listing things to look out for, such as bird species, animals and plants, and insects native to your area. These guides are specially devised for each world region.
