Whether you want to identify the birds that come to your backyard feeder or you've decided to take up bird-watching as a hobby, Donald and Lillian Stokes have created the best beginner's guides to birds ever published.
From the easy-to-use color coding to the more than 130 gorgeous full-color photos, the Stokes guides are factually, visually, and organizationally superior to any other books you can buy.

It contains dozens of full-color photographs that enable readers of all ages to identify the most common species; range maps; tips on attracting and observing firds; information on habitat needs, life cycle, food preferences; and much more.
