Book Review # 53

More info.

This book being reviewed is quite interesting because it explains  what happens to birds when winter comes. For most people that observe birds, are used to see them mostly in spring, summer and autumn, and then stop thinking of them during winter. Regardless if they migrate or they stay in the local area.

The  fact that we don’t see the majority of birds in winter it doesn’t mean  it should not matter to birds, on the contrary, it is the big challenge for them to maintain their health and survive the harsh temperatures and lack of forage, insects, fruits, etc.

This book will detail the most important points in a comprehensive manner. Great points such as:

  • Preparing for winter.
  • Winter ranges and habitat selection in migratory birds.
  • Survival.
  • Anticipating  spring.
  • Departure.
  • Conservation.
  • Climate change.

This book is 304 pages 85 b&w illustrations – 4 maps.
