Reader's note

Add a splash of blue to your home library with this vintage Pelican book. This is a 1940 first edition of Watching Birds by James Fisher! The keynote of this book is the description of the world of birds - as far as we are able to appreciate a world so distinct from our own - and of the methods and instruments people can use to get a better understanding of it. It is a world worth understanding, for ornithology tells us much that is of vital use to zoology as a whole, and the pursuit of birds has, at once, the paradoxical attributes of sharpening the wits and relaxing the mind, consuming energy and giving rest, and satisfying both the scientific and the aesthetic facets of the mind.
