Birds are absolutely everywhereâthey hide, they creep, they fly, they flock!âand this marvelous guide to finding feathered friends in the wild poetically points out the endless possibilities. Though plenty of birds take to the skies and trees, a birdwatcher shouldn't simply look up, Ward insists. Some blend into their surroundings, some nest on the ground, and some paddle in the water, sneaking snacks. Most important, don't forget to simply stop and listen for birds, as a glorious spread of cheery birdcalls suggests. It's a thoroughly charming introduction to bird behavior, and Sudyka's resplendent watercolor and gouache illustrations fill the pages with movement and onomatopoeic songs. Ward easily conveys a real excitement and admiration for our avian companions and makes bird-watching feel incredibly accessible for readers who may find themselves wandering in the woods or simply staring out their windows. Back matter includes some wonderfully helpful tips and resources for new bird watchers, and the vivid introduction to the subject is sure to make a budding ornithologist out of any young reader.
