Do you like or love to bird? Don't know the difference between Hairy Woodpecker or Downy Woodpecker? Don't know what the mantle is? Well, this is definitely the book for you!

This book is beautiful. I don't even know how to describe it. Most pages have four photographs a page, but some have anywhere from two to six or more.

The types of birds are colour-coded. For example, American sparrows and buntings are dark green. It is colour-coded like Birds of Maharashtra. This is a nice, quick reference! I don't know very many books quite like this.

There is also a qui…
