Overview

From the expert editors at Cool Springs Press, a series of regional bird books that love the outdoors as much as you do.
 
“Patience is a virtue,” said no backyard bird ever. That’s why, when these busy creatures come flitting into view, you need to have your resources ready at a moment’s notice. Have you spent all this time mistaking Carolina Wrens for House Wrens? A forgivable error, but with the Field Guide to Backyard Birds of the Mid-Atlantic, you’ll be pointing out those distinct upturned tails in no time. Each book in this series has been conveniently packaged in a field-sized 5”x8” format: large enough to showcase the gorgeous close-up photography within, but small enough to keep dependably at the ready. In this edition, each of the Mid-Atlantic region’s 80 most popular bird species gets its own page, complete with a concise description, preferred habitat, feeding and migration habits, and tips for attracting them to your bird feeders. Illustrated with colorful range maps, vibrant images, and a brilliant tabbed layout that helps you quickly search for birds by color, this portable field book will never again let that elusive Ruby-throated Hummingbird buzz stealthily out of range.
 
Mid-Atlantic states include Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Delaware.
