This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn about hummingbirds. It has great information on how to feed them, where to place feeders, how to attract them, as well as a lot of things I didn't know already. The pictures are great (actual color photos) and show many different kinds of hummingbirds, their nests, and babies. I read the whole thing in about an hour or so and I just love looking at all the beautiful photos.

I checked this book out from the library as a resource for learning a little more about hummingbirds... those fascinating little wisps of birds that frequent my feeder throughout the day.

The book is full of useful illustrations and photographs, as well as facts and lists related to hummingbirds and their habitats. It is a good basic reference books, but does not delve very much into the many species of hummingbirds found around the world.
