Fatbirder - linking birders worldwide... Wildlife Travellers see our sister site: WAND


There are specialist bookstores for birders and specialist Internet bookstores - even some combining both. If there is one thing guaranteed it is that these internet sites are a way of finding the cheapest supplier without wearing out your shoe leather.

You will note that Fatbirder has also linked up to offer you books via Amazon, simply click on any link and it will take you to that book on Amazon`s pages and give you a price and further details. If you are like me, and most other birders I know, you will have a growing collection of bird books, collecting them seems to become almost as great an obsession as birding itself.

I noted that there were a large number of bird book sellers represented at the British Bird Fair, and this is a great place to continue your search for out of print books… if you can't find it on line why not ask around at the fair. I was surprised that so few second hand bookshops have a web presence.

Useful Information

Avian Review

This website is for birders and has two key purposes, which come from two questions that have always driven me in my search of bird books. One: What other bird books exist in the different categories of countries, family groups, or species? Two: What's in these books and should I buy them?
