I can tell a robin from a pigeon. I recognize wild turkeys, pheasants, quail, Canada geese and and a few other birds you can eat if you really have to (like starlings.) A turkey vulture is the bird hanging way high with wing feathers like separate fingers. Blue herons look like pterodactyls when they fly. I have a light and passing familiarity with the larger birds, but lately, I have become interested in these LBBs - the Little Brown Birds that are partying at the feeder. Juncos and finches and chickadees and bush-tits. LG, bless her heart, is going to give me a bird-watching outing to introduce me to some more of the little feather dusters. But in the meantime, can anyone recommend a book like, "Little Brown Birds for Dummies?"
(Brace yourselves. This could lead to blurry shots of leaves and shadows with the proud caption, "The little brown spot in the upper left corner is either a Clemson's Warbler or an El-Ay Wrapper.")
