This fascinating and eclectic guide has been produced by the Birdwatch team of David Callahan (author) and Dominic Mitchell (editor). It looks at 100 key objects that profoundly shaped the way in which people have watched, studied and engaged with the avian world from pre-history to the modern day. From cave paintings of flightless birds dating back more than 40,000 years, through to the egret plume hats that inspired the formation of the RSPB, and onto technical developments such as the camera obscura, binoculars, DSLRs and mobile phones — all of which enabled humans to watch and record birds more effectively. This historical overview provides a unique perspective on the world of birds and those who watch them.
