    This book: • Starts with general bird and feeding/water/nesting info and specifics about attracting hummingbirds, bluebirds, woodpeckers, and others. • Lots of great large photos, descriptions, and maps (more helpful than you might think for identification purposes). • Only contains a little over 100 pages of bird identifications, so it does not include all birds.

    A very valuable resource with useful tips and ideas for both beginners and more experienced bird lovers. The book covers selection of feeders, food, birdbaths, and birdhouses and then gives specific details on 100 common birds.
