    Great Book!

    After reading the first few chapters, I was grateful that I had purchased this book. I then changed how I set up my feeders and ... wow! what a difference. I have been blessed w/at least 10 pairs of finches, and a pair of carolina wrens. My cardinals come to the feeders now everyday - instead of watching from another yard. The pair of Mockingbirds now visit a few times a week - mostly when I put out fruit.
    After reading about each type of bird - I now understand what those "odd" behaviors mean.
    I am just a beginner ... highly recommend this book.
