Watching Nature: A Beginner's Field Guide
by Monica Russo

This book encourages us to "open our eyes" and discover the wonders of the great outdoors. Russo shows readers how to locate hidden dens and nests, how to identify animals by field marks, behavioral activities and other clues, and how to listen for distinctive bird, insect, and amphibian songs. Other chapters aid in the identification of flowers and leaves, how to find animals in winter, and how to record one's observations. The full-color photographs are especially attractive and useful.
A good introduction to nature watching.
