Product Description

From the Back Cover

From urban container gardens to sprawling backyards—understanding and creating your own birding paradise
You see them every day, whether they are flashing through your yard, perching on a limb, or gathering in a puddle. They already share your neighborhood with you, but before you know it, they fly on in search of a hearty meal or a more suitable watering hole. That’s because you—even if you are already one of America’s more than 68 million birders—haven’t yet taken the steps needed to make birds linger in your garden. This unique and user-friendly guide shows you how.
With 250 vibrant full-color photos and concise, informative text, Backyard Birding helps you maximize your home birding experiences and attract a wider variety of birds. It helps you make the right choices the first time—and avoid costly mistakes.
Learn how to:
• Attract particular species by choosing the right foods, plants, trees, water sources, and nesting     
• Create a garden, region by region, that will be an oasis for birds
•  Instantly recognize, and attract, those birds you are most likely to see—including   the top birds found
  nationally as well as in Eastern and Western locations
• Identify birds by field marks, plumage, and more
• Make your yard the hummingbird capital of the neighborhood
• Fend off predators and other uninvited backyard guests

The pictures in this book are STUNNING, and the information is very comprehensive, plus fun and easy to read. This is my go-to bathroom book this spring, lol! I sent a copy to my grandparents across the country as well, they love watching and learning about the birds out the kitchen window, and this book covers ALL the regions. Excellent purchase, highest quality.

By Lynda G. Loomis - Published on Amazon.com
"Backyard Birding: A Guide to Attracting and Identifying Birds" has some of the best photographs we have seen in a birding book. There are beautiful, well-taken color photographs on every page. The quality of the printing, the photographs and the paper are excellent. Just as importantly, the contents of the book are enjoyable and informative. This book would be a wonderful addition to any library, bird lover or not!

We love this book...It is so well written and easy to use. The photos are so beautiful that you can sit and just flip through and look at the pictures. It will become your favorite bird book. I have shown it to friends and everyone of them is either buying a copy for themselves, or they thought of someone they needed to buy it for as a gift!

I'm not a birder myself & bought this book as a gift for 2 family members who are taking a deeper interest. For the person beginning to watch birds in the yard or local parks & countryside, I think this is a great start. Not limited to 1 region of USA. Explains identifying birds, selecting/offering food, placing proper birdhouses, buying equipment that can quickly get expensive. Chose this title because I know Nic & Randi (the authors)& the level of quality they expect of themselves in all their projects. PS - I never give 5-star ratings because then everyone argues about what they found wrong w/ the book, movie, restaurant, etc.
