Birdwatchers, or "birders", keep life lists, in which they make note of their first sighting of a species: date, place, habitat, etc. This easy-to-read, fact-filled "workbook" is a great way for young birdwatchers to begin keeping their own life lists, as they learn about 48 common North American birds. Written and illustrated by nature artist Sy Barlowe, it includes a space on each page for a sticker illustration of the bird described, along with information on bird size, habitat, nesting and eating habits, number and color of eggs, and range. There's also a place for youngsters to record the date, time and locality of the sighting, as well as personal remarks.
