    This book caught my eye in the local library and wanted to dismiss it as easily digestible fodder for the broad public and not serious birdy folks. "But 1001 is a very large number-- I should take a look in case there obvious things I don't already know." So I read it and found it was about what I expected. It is highly visual and the writing is a light, conversational style containing bird trivia snippets arranged in logical chapters on breeding, migration, etc. The first few chapters are cente This book caught my eye in the local library and wanted to dismiss it as easily digestible fodder for the broad public and not serious birdy folks. "But 1001 is a very large number-- I should take a look in case there obvious things I don't already know." So I read it and found it was about what I expected. It is highly visual and the writing is a light, conversational style containing bird trivia snippets arranged in logical chapters on breeding, migration, etc. The first few chapters are centered on feeding birds and bird houses for the backyard birder, but expands into other topics. The information is basic but accurate, and contains a fair number of factoids that took me a few years to accumulate through various sources. I did pick up one or two tidbits; many know the spine-tailed swift holds the record for fastest powered flight, but I didn't know woodcock were the slowest flyers (although has anyone clocked a southern emu-wren? Those guys barely move in the air). There were several recommendations for bucket-list birding spots I hadn't heard of, particularly in the Middle East, so that was interesting. Overall this could be a friendly starter guide to the world of birds and birding.

    I love this book! I haven't actually finished the book, but it's been wonderful and informative for me. It makes me want to go out exploring, immediately. The amount of information it provides for an amateur birder like me, is pretty vast. I don't normally rate books before I finish them, but this was too irresistible for me! I love this book!

    Very good book. Learned many things about birds and their lives. Well sectioned, i.e., nesting, raising clutches, feeding habits, etc. There was also information regarding birding and birding areas to visit as well as festivals to meet other birders--amateur and expert alike.

    So. If you have any interest in birds, read this. The author writes with humor and great knowledge of birds. Lots of pictures. Are you feeding too many birds? You'll know if the migration routes have changed to go over your house. So. If you have any interest in birds, read this. The author writes with humor and great knowledge of birds. Lots of pictures.

    Read like a blog. Read the book in a day. I would have liked the subject topics to be better arranged. Good beginner book for birders.

    A fun, interesting, and visually appealing book! However, it needs a final editing as, for instance, the word "sight" was misspelled as "site" several times (e.g. page 188, 128).
