About this item

No matter where we live—high-rise or house, arid climate or humid, urban area or country—one creature binds us together like no other: the bird. In North America alone, 60 million people identify themselves as bird-watchers, and most hone their skills right in their own backyards. Now, there's a book for every family who wants to learn more about the birds they love. Chapters cover all aspects of birding in an easy, accessible way. Vivid illustrations of 150 common species make identification a snap. Tips on feeding, birdhouses, and bird-friendly landscapes show how to attract birds to any environment for optimal viewing. Even children can get in on the action with a section devoted to kid-friendly projects and activities. To round out this ultimate one-stop resource, readers will find expert advice on bird songs, birding optics, and bird photography.
