Birding is an extremely popular outdoor activity. It doesn’t matter if you are traveling the world looking for ultra-rarities or checking out the common species at the feeders in your own backyard, enjoying birds is a great way to enjoy the natural world throughout the year. But most field guides don’t tell you how to go about birding, how to start or how to improve your field skills. Tonight on Inquiry, we welcome DEREK LOVITCH, who has worked on avian research and education projects throughout the United States. His new book HOW TO BE A BETTER BIRDER is for birders of all skill levels, and will certainly help you look for birds in a new, more exciting and productive way.
