Synopses & Reviews
A gallery of birds for your desktop, and the excitement of a new sighting every day. Exquisitely photographed up close and in color, here are hundreds of species from around the world. A Rose-breasted Grosbeak on a flowering branch. A flock of Snow Geese in flight. A vibrant blue Cerulean Warbler. A pair of courting Sarus Cranes. Plus finely detailed images of beautiful feathers, nests, and eggs. The birds are photographed in their natural habitats, and captions provide common and scientific names.
Featuring 13 of the most striking and fantastic birdhouses from the USA, Canada, Denmark, Japan, Lebanon, and more, this 16-month wall calendar is a must-have. Each month, users can delight at the spectacular creativity and sheer originality of each birdhouse and learn about its construction, where itand#39;s located, and what kinds of birds utilize it. The styles vary widely, much as those of human houses do, from sleek modern to elaborate Victorian to DIY hippie style.
