A Kid’s Guide to Birding was created by father and son birding enthusiasts, Michael and Lorenzo Rohani. Together they have visited many wildlife refuges, park lands, and birding hot spots to discover new birds and, at home, they made their own yard into a bird-friendly habitat. During this time, Lorenzo documented the many birds he observed. A Kid’s Guide to Birding brings together some of Lorenzo’s best photographs from three years (2009–2012) of his wildlife photography.
