I found this book disappointing. While the graphics are clear, the backyard birds I was looking to find were nowhere in the book. I feed several kinds of birds on my balcony daily and the doves and sparrows were the only ones I already knew. Backyard Birds of Florida obviously does not include the birds in South Florida, particularly in Miami.

I bought this book in the hopes of identifying the birds who come to my birdfeeders. The birds who are in the book are discussed and photographed in great detail. The problem was I was only able to find about half of the birds I was looking for in it. The writing style was geared to a juvinile audience and this was never mentioned. This book also took over 6 weeks to get to me. Overall I am pretty dissatified with what is otherwise a decent book for young birders.

Backyard Birds of Florida? What about the water birds? Those are the ones I was interested in identifying and learning more about. Most of the birds in the book I already have information about in other bird books. Was very disappointed that the book didn't include at least some of the water birds I frequently see at a small lake near my house. Does have nice photos and is well organized -- just short on Florida birds

Looking out my back window I've seen seven of the birds in this book, and five birds that are not in this book. Nevertheless, I use it as much as the 400 page book I bought at the same time. Every bird in this book has specific information about how to attract it, specifically. (Except for one, the Hawk, and for good reason.) The identification information is well presented and makes a good supplement to the bigger books. Plus, the general information in the back of the book about attracting birds is very helpful.
Truthfully, there is nothing in this book I couldn't get on line, on the other hand, I don't have to boot this book up every time I use it.
