Manual of Ornithology

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

I got this book out on interlibrary loan, and I’ve got to recommend it to anyone who likes drawing (or knowing about) birds. It’s a goldmine of incredibly interesting information about birds – how their wings work, that they have pneumatic bones, that there is a louse that infects birds that gives birth to live young(!), about brood patches…I could go on and on and I’m not halfway done with the book yet.

I originally found the book on the extremely useful big list of recommended books by the author of the Making A Mark blog.
