Here is the collection of the birding books that are in my birding library. Some are textbooks and some are behavioral, observational writings. As well there are bird almanacs and checklists. The majority are field guides in different forms and sometimes with focus on different families. Since I basically now live in Japan; I have had to search for field guides that are particular to Japan, or include it in their range. Some focus of bird families worldwide, which is of interest in the range that birds live or travel within. The Japanese birding books are mainly another reference tool to drawings and photos and charts for birds of this area. I occasionally do pull out the google translation app camera to catch snippets when I really need them. Another interesting list may be my Lifelist which is here.
