    An easy-to-use guide

    Hardcover for durability and spiral-bound to lay flat for easy reference, The Songbirds Bible is a straightforward, visual directory of 100 of the most common and beloved songbirds in North America. Ornithology professor Dr. Noble S. Proctor applies his 40 years of field experience to create detailed entries for each species, including descriptions of distinctive plumage colors, origin, behavior, distribution in North America, feeding and migration habits, how to attract a given species to one's garden, and much more. Highly detailed color illustrations of each species aid in visual identification, and an accompanying music CD of birdsongs will help both novice and seasoned birdwatchers recognize different species by song. An easy-to-use guide especially meant to be used and enjoyed by bird lovers.
