Hi Guys, I agree, Sean Dooleys 'big twitch' is certainly the funniest birding
book Ive read.
There are others though, you could try any of Bill Oddies birding books
probably the best are:
Little Black Bird Book,
Gone Birding &
Follow that bird.
another favourite of mine is Kenn Kaufmans 'Kingbird Highway' its an account of
a young mans year long travelling throughout North America in pursuit of birds.
Its a start anyway.
Seasons greetings to you.
