Over the years, I've found that a bird watcher needs several books: This one, a field guide with lots of pictures (The Sibley Guide to Birds is the best I've seen for bird identification), maybe a statewide field guide, and a huge book with a title something like Complete Birds of North America, for more details on individual birds after you've identified them.
I highly recommend this book as an essential part of any birder's library.
I've always enjoyed Nature, so I thought that I'd put up a few Birdfeeders in my backyard. I was suprised to see so many types a birds and other Wildlife that came by to visit my feeders.
I wanted to take it a step further and see how many kind of birds I could identify.
I went to your website and did a search for some books on the subject. I found "The Audubon Backyard Birdwatcher: Birdfeeders and Bird Gardens."
This is a great book for someone who is just starting out in this hobby. Full of information, easy to understand. It helped me Identify 13 different kinds of birds that visit my backyard.
I recommend this book foe anyone who wants a little more enjoyment out of Bird Watching.
The colors and the description is perfect. We have already found several birds in this book from seeing them in our yard where we feed them everyday, that we wasn't sure of what kind they were....Perfect Gift for anybody that is caught up in the beauty of watching birds. I gave this to my husband for his birthday, but no only do we both enjoy, our grandkids love looking up birds they see in the yard and finding the name of each one...
