Obsessed with birds

Robin's posts about the books she's reading inspired me to post about all the bird books we have in the house.

Because we're a family of birders, we have, um, just a few books on the topic, as you can see - click on the image to pull it up larger if you're curious about all the titles:
The only guide that's missing in this pile is the Kaufman Guide which is ds1's favorite and we keep it in the car so that we can reference it anytime we're out and about.

And because I won another haiku contest from WildBird magazine on Twitter, we will have a Peterson's guide to add to our stash soon!

Right now, we also have 2 bird books that we borrowed from the library. As if books weren't enough, we also have a bunch of birding magazines:
So, what do you think? Just a little obsessed? Maybe for some future posts, I'll compile my art books, knitting/crocheting books, the craft of writing books and science fiction books.  :)

What about you? Do you have a hobby that you love and have too many books and magazines of?

Oh..yes...I have a TON of farming/homesteading books...and I don't even want to get into the amount of fictional books I have between my two houses.

I have a couple of the bird books you have...I guess Im an accidental birder..I love taking pictures of birds and sometimes I'll come across one I've never seen before...and I get a little excited :P

Congrats on the haiku contest! :)

I love Kaufman's. I think that's my fave of all of them.

I have too many dyeing books. But I use them all. Once in a while.

I couldn't live with out them. I'm pretty sure.

Wow! If I ever have a "bird" question, I know where to turn!

I'm addicted to...well, books in general I guess. My hubby insisted I go through our wall of book shelves so that he could have space to put a few of his work-related books. I was able to clear out around 300 books for donation, and our shelves are STILL full!

just stopped in to say hi! Thought of you today. Happy New Year :)

I try only to buy books or magazines that I know I'll read over and over again. So I use the books I borrow from the library to fill up our bookshelves instead.

Thanks for dropping by, ladies! Since I know all of you, I had a good idea what your shelves would look like. ;) Sorry I've not responded sooner...I have been having internet problems.

Bird books, that's so cool. We've got a hawk that seems to hang out around our house. My middle daughter is thrilled because it's often perched just outside her window.

I haven't forgotten to "count" birds 2/17-2/20...:)
