John Busby's observation that 'there are more shapes of blackbird than species of thrush' encapsulates the premise of this guide to observing birds with a curious mind – a process that goes far beyond identification. Paired with insightful commentary and demonstrating that an individual specimen rarely conforms to its image as presented in field guides, his pencil and watercolour wash sketches capture birds at different times of day, in flight, at rest and as they preen, stretch, hunt and dive.
