An interactive full-colour field guide that teaches kids the fun, safe, and educational way to observe birds in their natural habitat.

Join expert bird photographers Damon Calderwood and Donald E. Waite, and their young friends, as they highlight all the basics of birding. Birding for Kids is filled with full-colour photos, fascinating facts, and fun projects that allow children to get up close and personal with nature while respecting the habitats of birds in the wild. The book includes guidelines on how to look for or attract birds in backyards, city parks, and rural areas; how to take pictures of birds or record information about them in a log book; how to help endangered or at-risk species; what to do if you find a hurt bird or abandoned nest; and much more. This informative guide also includes a list of common and scientific species names, a glossary of birding terms, and all the basic equipment you need to become an avid or casual birder.
