Book Review

IDENTIFYING AND FEEDING BIRDS. This is the best backyard bird-feeding book I've seen. Its author is Bill Thompson III, editor of the magazine Bird Watcher's Digest, a fine writer who knows both his subject and his readers. In 240 indexed pages, including excellent color photos, he tells us how, what, where, when, and why. The second half of the book describes the appearence, habits, and food preferences of 125 of North America's more common birds. Thompson also offers clear and useful answers to some of the most-asked questions about bird feeding. If you have no guides to bird feeding or the identification of birds likely to be seen in your yard, this could be the only book you'll ever need. It comes with two free copies of Bill's magazine. —Jim Williams, Wingnut Blog, Minneapolis Star Tribune.
