The Profit of Birding

The Profit of Birding

Bryan Bland

Author Bryan Bland has led thousands of birding tours to more than 70 countries. On one such trip a bemused waiter once posed the question: Where is the profit in birding? Bryan is famed as one of birding's greatest story-tellers, and he uses his book to answer this question emphatically.

In short, there's more to birding than just birds, although these clearly provide a great deal of interest

and pleasure. In addition history, dramatic scenery, location filming, plus much else from world politics to the crucial life-enhancing role of music are all featured in this light-hearted examination of the profit of birding.

Tales include scrapes with terrorists, running 50 miles across the landslide-strewn Himalayas in order to keep an appointment with a tour group, and Britain's firstever breeding pair of Parrot Crossbills using Bryan's beard to build their nest! Birders and non-birders alike will enjoy the humorous anecdotal narrative, while the lively text is accompanied by many of the author's photos and exquisite line-drawings. 240 pages.
