A series of beginner-to-novice birding books, All About Backyard Birds is based on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's number one birding website allaboutbirds.org, which has had more than 14 million unique users to date.
All About Backyard Birds delivers best-in-class content and proven user-friendly formats. Each regional version--eastern/central North America and western North America--provides 120 of the most popular species and is filled with beautiful illustrations by Pedro Fernandes. With charts, maps, and other bird identification tools, All About Backyard Birds offers beginner birders the ideal way to start birding.
All About Backyard Birds also includes a tutorial for MERLIN(R), an interactive GPS-based bird identification multimedia app (available in iTunes and Android stores and already used by more than 1 million birders), plus a FREE Bird QR book companion app. The app empowers users with a tap-to-listen birdsong function and gives more information about special topics throughout the book.
As with all Cornell Lab Publishing Group books, a portion of the net proceeds from the sale of All About Backyard Birds goes directly to the Cornell Lab to support projects, including children's educational and community programs.
