Guilford: Globe Pequot Press, 2013. Octavo, dustwrapper, colour illustrations.
Through a hundred short vignettes accompanied by stunning avian portraits, this book takes a look at the antics, behaviours, and idiosyncrasies of wild birds from the viewpoint of a professional wildlife biologist and award-winning wildlife photographer. Titlow understands the often wild and wacky lives of birders, those who are always ready and willing to drop everything at a moment's notice and "twitch off" to some exotic locations just to add another checkmark to their life lists. His engaging stories, complemented by vivid images, provide a fascinating compendium of wild bird lore perfectly suited to the 65-million-plus birders across the United States.
