Truly unique, this must-have guide is perfect for all wildlife watchers. Each entry is accompanied by numerous photographs and illustrations to help with identification, regardless of the time of year or what the bird is doing.

Each entry is highly detailed and includes distribution patterns and seasonal trends presented in clear, easy-to-use graphs; details of size, food, nest, and eggs; bird numbers; typical lifespan; and the longest recorded lifespan. Striking bird illustrations mimic the accompanying photographs. The guide also includes plants, animals, reptiles, insects, and much more, as well as additional information on gardening to attract birds.
