10,000 Birds

With the app downloaded onto a phone and the phone camera pointed to a bird in the book, the bird seems to come alive, move — and sing. The effect is completely enchanting.

10,000 Birds

Also, with each copy of the book you get a voucher with a Lynx Edicions website page link and a code to download the.pdf country checklist that follows the same taxonomy as your field guide (and you wouldn’t want it any other way). As a rule of thumb, all books that I reviewed were of noticeably high quality.
