Book Recommendation: What It's Like to be a Bird

One of my resolutions this year is to learn about different topics of interest. I read about this bird guide, What It's Like to Be a Bird: From Flying to Nesting, Eating to Singing--What Birds Are Doing, and Why by Sibley Guides. It is a fascinating book for bird and non-bird enthusiasts alike as it is the comprehensive guide that provides a deeper understanding of most common birds. Having this type of understanding will allow us to have a better sense of appreciation for all the wonders of nature. This book has illustrations of over 300 birds, including blue jays, chickadees, and nuthatches, which many of us can observe in our own backyards.
