I love picking up vintage nature guides like this one Introducing our Eastern Birds by Matthew F. Vessel and Herbert H. Wong, Illustrated by Ron King.
The illustrations are just gorgeous.
Juliet and I like to look at the birds and we both learn their names.
Our next door neighbor has a bunch of bird feeders, so we see a lot of cardinals flying back and forth from our yard to hers.
I love the colors on this page.
I kind of want to tear out a few pages and frame them, but I don't think I have the guts to destroy the book.
Someone once told me that they checked out a book of birds from the library that came with a CD of all the bird calls and songs on it. I haven't checked my library for such a book, but I did find a few great websites that Juliet and I have had fun listening to on rainy days.
Do you have any favorite bird guides to share or any great bird song websites?
