From one of America’s pre-eminent ornithologists and nature photographers, here is everything a beginning birdwatcher needs to create a haven for birds in the backyard. From choosing binoculars and field guides to creating a garden birds will love, The Complete Backyard Birdwatcher’s Home Companion is the complete guide for any birder in North America. Donald Heintzelman first covers the basics—equipment and identification—and then shows how to attract and sustain birds in the backyard through the use of gardening, landscaping, feeders, baths, and birdhouses. Three model backyard landscapes are illustrated in full-color spreads, and quick-reference charts identify matches between plants and the birds that use them. The Companion also includes a detailed resource section that includes birding on the Internet and state-by-state listings of birding organizations and equipment suppliers.
