I recommned this wonderfully illustrated hard cover version to any bird enthusiast! A must have on your porch/sunroom coffee table! The audio sibling to this book lets you sample each birds song(s) while viewing the birds and their respective habitat - my backyard!!!
This is really a great gift - to be looked at all year long!

I have learned to reconize the birds in my own private backyard garden. This book was a gift to my husband and I and it has been well used and we will continue to use it not only as a coffee table book that gets picked up often but as an excellent reference to enhance the love we have for the beauty in our own backyard.

Found this book at the library book sale. A nice introduction to backyard birds in North America, and the division by region is helpful. I don't think we'll be constructing a bird garden (our dogs are not bird-friendly), but I liked it for merely augmenting my ability to identify types of birds.
