Written in collaboration with the National Audubon Society, this pocket guidebook may be small in size but is plentiful in content. Offering a broad introduction to birdwatching and related activities, it is filled with advice on identifying, attracting and welcoming avian friends.
The first section describes many aspects of bird behavior, followed by a section on how to create a bird-friendly environment around your house, from installing appropriate nesting and feeding equipment to determining what to plant and how to manage your lawn.
The latter part of the book examines the features used in bird identification, profiling 40 North American species, each with a description, illustrated characteristics, color photos and a color-coded map showing the species range and seasonal location.
