"Birdwatching is something we do for enjoyment, so if you enjoy it, you are already a good birder. If you enjoy it a lot, you are a great birder."
Kenn Kaufman: writer, artist, lifelong naturalist

One of my favorite reads from last year! A native of Edgefield, South Carolina, J. Drew Lanham is the author of The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature, which received the Reed Award from the Southern Environmental Law Center and the Southern Book Prize, and was a finalist for the John Burroughs Medal.
A topic close to my heart, Urban Nature. Kelly Brenner invites us to explore micro habitats of nature within the urban landscape, based in the city she lives in, Seattle WA. With wonder and a sense of humor, Nature Obscura author Kelly Brenner aims to help us rediscover our connection to the natural world that is just outside our front door — we just need to know where to look.
I've learned so much reading Sibley's new book. This special, large-format volume is geared as much to non-birders as it is to the out-and-out obsessed, covering more than two hundred species and including more than 330 new illustrations by the author. A beautiful book providing all the details you never knew you wanted to know on the lives of birds.
