4th Impression. [First Edition: 1950] From the cover: “Watching birds at their nests calls for a sound technique as well as patience, and in the first part of his book Mr. Ford explains to the beginner such arts as camouflage, the construction of a hide, and the use of artificial bird calls. There is a valuable chapter on the encouragement of birds and their protection. In the second part of the book the eggs, nest and nesting site of each British bird are described, and many are illustrated in the eight colour plates and nineteen photographs.”
