Diary of a Left-Handed Birdwatcher

Diary of a Left-Handed Birdwatcher
de Leonard Nathan (Ed. Harvest Books) Isbn : 0156005387
8.05 €
While not geared to the average chickadee-loving bird watcher, this title will be appreciated by readers who love both birds and poetry. Nathan, a noted poet, has compiled essays on his passion: finding the elusive snow bunting.

Liberally sprinkled with quotations on birds from well-known poets and philosophers and with his own poems, Nathan's book has added a needed dimension to the now popular pastime and even passion of birding. For natural history...

While focusing on a particular bird of the Southwest, this book is really a field study of another rare species: the wildlife management professional. Through stories about his own experiences studying Merriam's wild turkey--anecdotes about the foibles of field work and the bureaucratic boondoggles of wildlife management--Shaw offers a sober and seasoned view of what managers are doing, and failing to do, in their efforts to protect the animals and landscapes that we love.
