Feeder Birds of the Southeast: A Folding Pocket Guide to Common Backyard Birds (Paperback)
If you've spent a lot of time observing bird feeders in the US Southeast, then you're intimately aware of the unique insights that can be gained by watching the busy comings and goings of common visitors like Painted Buntings, Northern Cardinals, American Goldfinches, Brown-headed Nuthatches, and Red-bellied Woodpeckers. Especially during migration when standouts like Indigo Buntings and Baltimore Orioles pass through, feeder-watching is a endlessly spell-binding experience. Attracting a wide variety of birds doesn't happen by accident--the right feeder setup goes a long way. To help enhance your feeding station, we've created this handy resource featuring beautifully illustrated profiles of 40 familiar feeder birds of the Southeast, each annotated with notes on species' habitats and behaviors. Also included is an overview of feeder types and recommended foods for attracting each species. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is a terrific companion for educators, learners, naturalists, birders, and homeowners who wish to sharpen their identification skills and forge deeper connections with the Southeastern birds that readily seek bird feeders throughout the year. Made in the USA.
