In this three-volume series, Peterson Field Guides and Bird Watcher's Digest team up to provide reliable, expert advice on backyard bird watching. Each of these engaging, authoritative guides covers a unique aspect of the backyard birding experience, with identification tips, full-color photographs, and a heaping helping of practical advice. The longtime editor of Bird Watcher's Digest and author of numerous bird books, Bill Thompson, III, has been feeding and watching birds for more than 40 years. He has tried everything, and he shares what he's learned so that readers can avoid the mistakes and skip right to what works.

Bird Homes and Habitats

Which birds use nest boxes? What's required to maintain a birdhouse? What kind of habitat will attract which birds? What does it take to be a bluebird trail operator? What does it mean if baby birds or eggs disappear from their nest? Bill Thompson, III, answers all of these questions and more, helping readers to create yards and gardens where birds will make their homes and raise their young. A lavishly illustrated chapter provides ideas and inspiration for creating bird havens by profiling "Birdy Backyard All Stars," fifteen homeowners from around the country who have actively worked to create bird-friendly habitats.

Hummingbirds and Butterflies

Hummingbirds and butterflies are some of the most beautiful visitors to a backyard, but they can also be some of the most elusive. Written by experts Bill Thompson, III, and Connie Toops, this engaging book includes tips on how to attract hummingbirds and butterflies to backyards—and how to identify them once they've arrived.

Identifying and Feeding Birds

This readable, friendly guide is intended for bird watchers and non-bird watchers alike—for anyone who wants to enjoy nature right in his or her own backyard. Common myths about bird feeding are debunked: Does feeding birds stop them from migrating? Will birds starve if you leave your feeders empty after the birds have come to rely on them? This volume also profiles 130 species that are most common at backyard feeders. It's all right here—everything a beginner needs to know about attracting birds and identifying them.
