Allmänna fakta



I put this on the wish list list from whence it was plucked (thank, kids!) mostly in the spirit of just adding to my collection of tree field guides. However, its front materials are excellent and included information I had not picked up in several years of reading tree-related books. The main body is well organized, well illustrated, and well written. And there's even a handy "tree watchers" checklist in the back, to track the trees you see in the real world. So I have a strong feeling this will not just be sitting on my shelf looking pretty, but will see active use in the years to come.… (mer)

A nice poetry anthology edited by BC with bird paintings by D.A. Sibley. 113 poems with MI = 12.4.

Sibleyy's is the standard that other books on birds is judged on. Comprehensive volume on all things birds. Highly recommend it for all bird watching enthusiasts.

Not exactly a “book” it’s more like a huge collection of facts and bird illustrations, covering a lot of general information about birds as well as some specifics about 100 or so well-known species, most of which live in the US. Some of it reads like a (calmer gentler) version of Ripleys Believe It or Not. Not really a narrative there, but not really a reference book either.
