Birds follow a cycle that depends on the seasons: When caterpillars are at their peak in summer, bird nests are filled with hungry babies hollering for food; in winter, a high-fat menu at the feeder helps birds make it through the night.

Divided into four parts (specialized for each season), it provides of a lot of information. It covers how the weather of each season affects habits and behavior, how to attract birds by offering what they need season-to-season, and how to arrange your landscaping to attract a variety of birds.

Like Sally's other books, the format is very easy to read. Open it to any two pages and find a combination of charts, color photographs, and/or boxes with ideas. It helps any bird watcher improve their own

the casting of the four season is mainly full knowledge and mainly concentrating to the feeding rather than the behavior for the climate of the ave.

Another great bird book for all bird lovers! I loved this book, it was so engaging and the writer told us so much of what worked and didn't work for her with the birds in her own yard. She provides so much information including different types of plants, shrubs, trees, etc. to plant to attract specific types of birds. She even includes chapters for each season of the year, what to feed the birds in each season and many tips on how to help the birds survive. Beautiful photos throughout! Such a he ...more
