Britain’s Birds: An Identification Guide to the Birds of Britain and Ireland–A Book Review

10,000 Birds

It also makes it a little intimidating to be doing a review of Britain’s Birds: An Identification Guide to the Birds of Britain and Ireland. Up to this point, I’ve been reviewing Britain’s Birds as a librarian, looking at organization, design, and accessibility of information in a book format.

Birding for the Curious: A Book Review

10,000 Birds

I usually put the author’s biography near the end of a review, but I wanted to get the disclaimers out of the way. Not only is Nate a birding and blogging colleague, but Mike Bergin, 10,000 Birds co-publisher, has written the Foreword and I have been threatened with all sorts of birder-type punishment if I give this book a bad review. But, as we say in the book review world, you can’t keep a critical mind down. Reviews beginning birding book review

It’s time for some short book reviews.

It really doesn’t really worry me, I just thought it was curious, and something I did not notice when I reviewed the west coast guide.
