A small, wise, funny book that makes birdwatching sound like the best hobby ever. And, well, I guess that was the point. Highly recommended if you have ever for a moment wondered how you might tell the difference between one small brown bird and another.
Birdwatchers are famous for being boring. I would reject that claim myself – birdwatchers are capable of having a conversations that are meaningless to outsiders, but so are football fans, musicians, and gardeners. But when it comes to the subject of binoculars, I have to concede the point. Birdwatchers can be the most crashing bores on the subject of optical glass.
