Perhaps the only items we birders love as much as our binoculars are bird books. Happily, there is no shortage of titles. What follows is a suggested list of books that any birder would benefit from owning.

Some titles and authors will be familiar, but others may have flown beneath the radar. Some are easy reading, while others require a reader. The petite, brightly plumed parrot is a favorite among bird enthusiasts and a popular pet. Lovebirds have inspired scientists and poets alike.

Birds Britannica. I have a vested interest in this book because I did more than five years of research on it, which was some of the most interesting work I’ve ever done.
