about this item

Coloring enthusiasts, bird lovers, and flower gardeners will all delight in our biggest and most exciting new coloring book, set at home where the majority of America's 100 million birders and flower gardeners live and interact with nature every day?Backyard Birds and Blossoms.

Featuring glorious backyard birds with flowering annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, and vines, each coloring page is intricately designed with scientific accuracy to create real and true connections with nature at home. And, as a special BONUS feature, we've included a 30" landscape poster that can be removed and colored for a wonderful extended experience.

Backyard Birds and Blossoms is the third adult coloring title from leading bird authority, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and this one dives deeper into what birders love as they enjoy their own personal "great outdoors" at home. For this special coloring book, we've assembled an "A-team" of contributors?Dr. Emma Ileana Greig, the Cornell Lab's Director of renowned "citizen science" platform, Project FeederWatch; Stacy Tornio, former editor of Birds & Blooms Magazine and author of Bird Brainiacs; and Brenda Lyons, who brought us America's Favorite Birds.

The market for this title is expansive. More than 50 million people in North America feed birds and add features to their yards to attract and help birds, such as bird baths, bird houses, and native shrubs and flowers that attract and help protect birds. And more than 50 million people plant flowers each year to enhance the beauty and enjoyment of their homes. Approximately 74% do both according to depth research on bird watchers at the Lab.
On each spread (coloring pages perforated for easy removal, coloring and display), readers can learn about the birds and blossoms they colored, plus what is happening in the scene with some amazing facts, completing true connections to the nature just outside their own windows.
Back matter for this new coloring title adds basic but powerful content about bird feeders and food, water sources, native plants and shelter, and other elements birds need to thrive in their backyards, and simple tips that readers can use to attract more of them. This includes a beautiful graphic chart as a ready reference for people to know which food and feeders attract which birds, plus a simple DIY guide page on how to "birdscape" their yard to create their own personal bird sanctuaries at home.
We also share information about Cornell Lab's citizen science projects and online resources, including Project FeederWatch, where people from across North America participate in real science by sharing what they see at their feeders; Project NestWatch where people share nesting information from their homes each year; and YardMap, where people can map and plan their yard with interactive tools. In last year's program, more than 6.8 million birds were reported b
