Summary
"Many birders travel far and wide to popular birding destinations to catch sight of rare or 'exotic' birds. In Slow Birding, evolutionary biologist Joan E. Strassmann introduces readers to the joys of birding right where they are. In this inspiring guide to the art of slow birding, Strassmann tells colorful stories of the most common birds to be found in the United States--birds we often see but might not have considered deeply before."-- Provided by publisher.
