About the Author
Praise For The Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior…
“Regardless of one's reasons for watching birds, learning about their lives can greatly enhance the pleasure of watching their behavior--as well as markedly improve one's ability to identify them in the field. The new "Sibley Guide to Bird Life and Behavior" will help with both. Like Sibley's popular field guide, it will undoubtedly become a principal source to answer questions on avian taxonomy, habitat, behavior, and distribution. Sibley's numerous colored illustrations are alone, sufficient reason to purchase this guide, but in addition, it summarizes an impressive amount of useful information. The text is beautifully written and the chapters are consistently well organized. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in understanding the life and behavior of birds.”
--Dr. Wm. James Davis, editor of the Interpretive Birding Bulletin.
