David Allen Sibley’s field guides are an indispensable resource in identifying birds for beginner and advanced birders alike. In his new book, What It’s Like to Be a Bird: From Flying to Nesting, Eating to Singing – What Birds Are Doing, and Why, Sibley provides a new and deeper understanding of what common, mostly backyard, birds are doing – and why. This book also contains 330 new illustrations by the author which accurately and exquisitely help readers visualize bird behaviors. We’re thrilled to partner with Boswell Book Company to present an evening with David Sibley, in conversation with Wisconsin’s own Charles Hagner, author of The American Birding Association Field Guide to Birds of Wisconsin.
