An accurate painting of each bird aids in the identification of the familiar, garden-variety birds found in the United States, and accompanying maps show habitat range. With its lovely illustrations, hand-lettered text, and convenient size, Early Birds makes a wonderful gift for any occasion.
Reminiscent of nineteenth-century botanical prints, the full-color illustrations in these small nature guides are miniature watercolors, as delightful to look at as they are accurate. Beneath each illustration the reader will find the popular and scientific names, size, range, and a concise description of the habitat or an interesting bit of lore. Ideal for the backpacker or dayhiker, the books fit handily in the pocket.
