Publisher Comments:

This readable, friendly guide is intended for bird watchers and nonand#8211;bird watchers alikeand#8212;for anyone who wants to enjoy nature right in his or her own backyard.
and#160;
The longtime editor of Bird Watcherand#8217;s Digest and author of numerous books on birds, Bill Thompson IIIand#160; has been feeding and watching birds forand#160;forty years. He has tried everything, and here he shares what heand#8217;s learned so that readers can avoid mistakes and skip right to successful bird feeding. He also debunks common myths about bird feeding: Does feeding birds stop them from migrating? Will birds starve if you leave your feeders empty after the birds have come to rely on them?
and#160;
In an easygoing and lighthearted style, seven chapters cover all the elements needed to attract birds to a backyard (food, water, shelter) and address special cases and problems (keeping bees out of the hummingbird feeder, preventing birds from flying into windows,and#160;and much more). The final chapter profiles theand#160;130 species that are most common at backyard feeders. No separate field guide is needed; itand#8217;s all right hereand#8212;everything a beginner needs to know to attract birds and then figure out what kind they are.

Synopsis:

First in a three-bookand#160;series on watching birds in the backyard: backyard bird ID, bird feeding, hummingbirds, bluebirds, bird houses, gardening for birds, etc.

Synopsis:

Hummingbirds and butterflies are some of the most beautiful visitors to a backyard, but they can also be some of the most elusive. This second collaboration between the Peterson Field Guide series and Bird Watchers Digest includes tips on how to attract hummingbirds and butterflies to backyardsand how to identify them once theyve arrived. Bill Thompson III and Connie Toops have decades of firsthand experience and have written the book in a fun, lighthearted style, providing both amateur and veteran nature watchers with need-to-know information, including where hummingbirds and butterflies live, what they eat, and the best garden plants to attract them. The species profiles of the 15 most common hummingbirds and 40 most common butterflies serve as a field guide, showing ranges, identifying marks, and preferred habitats. Full-color photographs and detailed drawings make attracting, identifying, and feeding these colorful creatures a snap.
