Bill knows you can learn a lot from just paying attention and his drawings and pre-stained pages will brighten any bird outings. Whether it's what they eat, where they fly to or how they communicate, these birds are always fascinating, and he introduces us to their weird and wonderful ways in a manner that is always entertaining.

I don't count them, or make lists, but I do love watching their behaviour and interaction with each other.

The paperback pocket version is pretty small but doesn't lose its charm without a hardback and it's small enough to take out and about.
