Resource Description
BIRDING ACROSS AMERICA: A Naturalist's Observations. Keenan. Why write another bird book? the late Philip Keenan writes in his preface. Based on nearly sixty years of birding with eye, pen, and plenty of books, I think I have some things to say…. One aspect of the world of birding I miss … is the de-emphasis by contemporary writers of the importance of birds to the emotional and sentimental life of human beings. Here, from the swamps of Alabama to the icy waters of Québec's Gaspé Peninsula, from the sky islands of Arizona to the birdfeeder in his New Hampshire backyard, Keenan describes the pageantry of North American birdlife. While his informative and often poetic book cannot always answer the questions he has—What weather conditions make for the best warbler viewing? Why do ovenbirds lay colored eggs? What do the relative sizes of birds of different sexes tell us about their love lives? - it never fails to fascinate. And, with more than 100 brilliant color illustrations provided by the author, Keenan's book is as much treat for the eyes as it is for the mind. #SPC-106. Hardcover.
