‘A revelation for anyone with the slightest interest in the feathered friends visiting their gardens’ – Garden News

You don’t have to be a dedicated birdwatcher to be a bird lover. Millions of us love the sight and sound of them. And yet most of us know very little about their remarkable behaviour, incredible diversity and the story of their evolution. This handbook sets about answering every interesting question there is to ask about birds.

How do migrating birds know where to go?
Are birds really descended from dinosaurs?
How do birds have sex?

There are over 10,000 species in the world, including over 500 in Britain, some rare and endangered, some bizarre and beautiful, others common and familiar. As this captivating and often humorous handbook reveals, all of them are fascinating.

Filled with beautiful illustrations, The Curious Bird Lover’s Handbook is perfect for experienced twitchers and those who are simply captivated by the beauty of birds and would like to learn more about them.



The hardback edition titled “Bald Coot and Screaming Loon” was published in 2009. This paperback edition has been updated and includes a new foreword from the author.
