Item Description...
Shares tips for watching wildlife--bugs, animal tracks, birds, and shoreline plants--explaining how to sharpen observational skills and identify various plants and animals.

Publishers Description

With Jim Arnosky as your guide, an ordinary hike becomes an eye-opening experience. He'll help you spot a hawk soaring far overhead and note the details of a dragonfly up close. Study the black-and-white drawings -- based on his own field research -- and you'll discover if those tracks in the brush were made by a deer or a fox.

In his celebrated style, this author, artist, and naturalist enthusiastically shares a wealth of tips. Jim Arnosky wants you to enjoy watching wildlife. He carefully explains how field marks, shapes, and location give clues for identifying certain plants and animals wherever you are. He gives hints for sharpening observational skills. And he encourages you to draw and record birds, insects, shells, animal tracks, and other finds from a busy day's watch.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Informative introduction to the outdoors  Oct 29, 2007
Jim Arnosky's books about animals and nature are always exceptional and interesting for children. This is no exception. "Field Trips" is a wonderful overview of bugs, large wild animals, birds, and waterlife, and how we can observe and learn about these creatures. There are silhouettes of a large number of common insects, footprints of wild and domesticated animals and birds commonly found in N. America, and sea shells and shore plants. "Crinkleroot's Nature Almanac" (also by Jim Arnosky) provides a bit more detail about the same subject, but it seems to be out of print.
Fun book for 4 nature activities   Aug 4, 2004
This book takes you thru 4 specific nature activities, using nature drawings & giving things to look for etc. I think we will enjoy this when we wish to do any of the 4 activities. It is not, however, a how-to book for general nature observation or nature notebooks, as I had thought. But the 4 activities are good -- bug hunting, bird watching, animal tracking, and shore walking.
