I just got this in the mail and after viewing it I realized it was very similar to the Birds in your back yard book I purchased a week ago, the only difference is the book cover and the years it was published. The pages are identical, not one page or word different.

RECOMMENDATION: Buy books like this from Amazon and buy them used because most of the time they are bran new like this one is. Do not purchase this book from "Shop at Home"


Here is my review:

A few days ago, I watched "Sky" the Scrub Jay steal a peanut I had left for "Hoffa" the Squirrel. "Sky" flew all over the front and back yards, trying to find a safe spot to stow his find. Finally, the Jay landed next to the pond and moved several pebbles out of the way so a hole could be dug. Into the hole went the peanut, and I thought that was that.

Did you ever gasp in delight as a brightly colored bird flutters by, then spend the rest of the afternoon wondering what kind of bird you saw? Birds In Your Backyard features some of the most common types of birds in North America with photographs, colored prints, explanations of habitat, range, and food sources to help even the most inexperienced bird watcher. Great as a gift or as a part of your permanent library.

I'm a birder, and one day aspire to planting the perfect bird and butterfly garden in my backyard. This book provided a lot of inspiration and info on how to attract not only birds to your yard, but butterflies as well. The pictures in this book are pleasing, the how to's inspiring, and the overall layout very well done. I was pleasantly surprised as I was reading the section showing how to make different kinds of birdhouses and bird feeders. I've never thought to myself, "Ya know, I oughta make...more

This book has a permanent home on my enclosed porch, beside a pair of binoculars. I refer to it many times each season to identify a bird, or to refresh my memory on a particular bird's feeding, mating, eating or nesting habits. It is very easy to read, and well organized. Large clear, full color photography makes it easy to use.

We enjoy watching our backyard birds. This book is a great beginners' guide to backyard bird watching. The boys enjoyed all the pictures showing all the different types of common backyard birds. This would be a great resource for our home library, but until then...we'll have to keep checking the book out from the library.

If you ever wanted to create a garden to attract birds and butterfly's, this book will be of great assistance. It identifies many flowers, shrubs, etc and what type of bird they attract. It also shows how to build feeders. It lists many commom birds and butterflys with great photos of each.
