One of the best ways to learn about birds is to observe them on a regular basis. Even in a big city like Boston, it's impressive how much avian life can be seen with the appropriate habitat and the right type of feeder. Northern Cardinals, American Goldfinches, various sparrows, and the state bird, the Black-capped Chickadee, are frequent visitors to backyards in Eastern Massachusetts. You can get to know them and other familiar species with this handy reference. This beautifully illustrated guide features full-color images as well as useful notes on species' sizes and diagnostic field marks. There are also informative introductions to birding and gardening, as well as tips on housing, feeding, and attracting common bird species. Developed in collaboration with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is part of the All About Birds Pocket Guide Series, an in-depth collection of 15 titles on watching, attracting, and feeding birds; nests and eggs; and regional identification guides. Laminated for durability, this portable resource is the ideal companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and birders of all levels who wish to deepen their connection with the birds in and around Boston. Made in the USA.
