The perfect gift for your favorite birdwatcher!
Since winter on the Great Plains is often bitterly cold, inhospitable, and colorless, residents of this bleak landscape feed wild birds both to help them survive and to bring life and color to the landscape. This strikingly beautiful addition to Iowa's laminated guidebook series will also bring life and color to everyone who enjoys watching and nurturing winter birds.
Dana Gardner's colorful and accurate paintings show birds in flight, perched, and at appropriate kinds of feeders. Nancy Overcott's text provides common and scientific names for fifty species, from the great horned owl to the red-breasted nuthatch to the white-throated sparrow, as well as average size, distribution, and preferred feeder foods.
Useful for both novice and experienced birdwatchers across the entire Midwest—from the prairies and forests of North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin south through Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and northern Oklahoma—Birds at Your Feeder is a durable and beautiful guide to one of nature's favorite winter visitors.
“What a charming little guide. Birds at Your Feeder should serve as a useful introduction for anyone learning about common backyard birds.”—Laura Erickson, author of For the Birds: An Uncommon Guide
