During the colder months of the year we can get a better look at birds when they come into our gardens looking for food. By observing them through the kitchen window or from our favorite armchair by the fire we can get to know them, their behavior and their special characteristics.
This book is about the winter birds that gather around the bird table - from the cheeky blue tits and chattering tree sparrows to the messy nuthatches and the more restrained greenfinches - only to disappear at the first sight of a sparrowhawk. Winter Birds includes beautifully illustrated watercolor pictures and personally written texts about forty common species. Not only does Winter Birds help you to identify the birds, it is also a book of personal observations, cultural history and interesting facts.
