Ever wonder what kinds of birds are visiting your backyard, the park down the street, the woods at your cottage? Lorimer's Pocketguides are designed for readers--young and old--who want handy-sized guides to help them identify the birds commonly spotted in their area.
With one bird per page, their easy-to-use format features:

New, original, full-colour illustrations by wildlife artist Jeffrey C. Domm, created especially for these books, highlight features that make it simple to identify particular birds.

These unique bird guides also include lists of birding hot-spots in and around each city, contributed by local birding experts.
