I hate the Fear books... you know, the disaster books about how to die at sea. I don't read them, I throw them overboard and stick to stuff that is going to make my voyages more fun
Anyway, theres a new
book that will be great on board!!!!!!!!!!
Sea birds can be very difficult to identify - unless they land on the boat. This book has over 2,000 photos including multiple identification shots of each bird, many shot in different sun or cloud conditions. Also maps of where and *when* you'll see them.
Theres a lot of birds I know, but many I just give a nickname to: The "Hello Bird" because they fly up from astern and when abeam the cockpit the turn their head and give you a very good inspection, they're saying hello
Also ones I know, like St Peters Petral I dont know why they try and stand on the water with their feet... I will soon
Ive attached some photos below. Theres an indepth review on this site: Oceanic Birds of The World: A Photo Guide-A Book Review - 10,000 Birds
