New Book Encouraging a "Lite" Approach to Enjoying Birds is Published by Stan Dryden Publishing


Birding Lite is a humorous look at birding, or bird watching, written primarily but not solely for beginning birders and others who are merely interested in birds. It describes how to get started in birding and discusses the equipment and techniques that can help a birder see and identify birds.

Carmel, CA, January 10, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Birding (or bird watching) is one of the fastest-growing forms of outdoor recreation in the country. Many people who enjoy watching birds are intimidated by the prospect of trying to learn what each bird is called. Birding Lite: A Humorous How-to Guide for All Who Enjoy Watching Birds offers a non-threatening, stress-free way to find and achieve a level of participation in birding that is both comfortable and rewarding.

Filled with humor, this book is written mainly for the beginning birder and for people who just enjoy watching them casually. Experienced birders can also learn some new wrinkles. Unlike other books, it does not assume that the reader aspires to develop the ability to identify every bird he or she may see. But it does give guidance on how to learn from others, how to choose binoculars and other “birdaphernalia,” how to find written resources that might enhance one’s learning, and how to attract birds to one’s yard – among other topics.

Each chapter begins with a funny saying, and sprinkled throughout the book are “Fun Facts” about birds. Although the book gently pokes fun at those who take birding too seriously, it also calls attention to birding hints that may be new to the seasoned birder. One chapter discusses how birders can use both the logical, analytical left side of the brain and the intuitive, creative right side.

Brian Weed, one of the premier birders on the Monterey Peninsula, had this to say about Birding Lite, “Full of humor, knowledge, insight, and personal experiences, this is the perfect book for the beginning birder. The more advanced birders will see their birding passions in these pages."

Author Stan Dryden describes himself as a “recovering engineer,” once hopelessly left-brained, who has found that enjoying birds has been of great help in developing the right side of his brain. A ten-year birder, Stan enjoys leading walks to help others grow to appreciate and enjoy our feathered friends.
