From the cover: “This book takes the reader to the many haunts of birds — the coast, downs, meadows, lanes and gardens, painting an attractive word-picture of each bird as he goes. He tells enough of bird habits to fire the enthusiasm of the beginner and set him off with binoculars and note-book to see more for himself. There is much sound advice on the art of bird watching, and as an aid to identification there are eight colour plates, sixteen superb close-up photographs, and some drawings by Rowland Green.”
