This unique illustrated handbook provides all the essential tools needed to become a better birder. Here Lovitch offers up his “Whole Bird and More” approach, a more effective way to go about identification that will enable you to identify more birds, more quickly, more often. He demonstrates how to use geography and an understanding of habitats, ecology, and the weather to enrich your birding experience and help you find something exciting. Lovitch shows how to track nocturnal migrants using radar, collect data for bird conservation, discover exciting rarities, develop patch lists – and much more. This is the ideal resource for intermediate and advanced birders who want to take their birding skills to the next level.
