Ted Floyd - How to Know the Birds

The Art and Adventure of Birding, a Nature Book Talk & Signing

Ted Floyd has written four books, including Smithsonian Field Guide to the Birds of North America, and more than 150 popular articles, technical papers, and book chapters on birds and natural history. He will discuss and sign How to Know the Birds: The Art and Adventure of Birding ($28.00 National Geographic Society). This friendly, relatable book is a celebration of the art, science, and delights of bird-watching. With short essays on 200 observable species, Floyd guides us through a year of becoming a better birder, each species representing another useful lesson: from explaining scientific nomenclature to noting how plumage changes with age, from chronicling migration patterns to noting hatchling habits. Dozens of endearing pencil sketches accompany Floyd's charming prose, making this book a unique blend of narrative and field guide.
