The US Southwest is especially rich in avian life, and active bird-feeding stations are great places to observe fascinating inter- and intra-species interactions. Common birds like Acorn Woodpeckers, Anna's Hummingbirds, Stellar's Jays, Black-headed Grosbeaks, and Lesser Goldfinches are especially colorful regulars among an ever-changing cast of species. Attracting a wide variety of birds to your yard doesn't happen by accident--the right feeder setup goes a long way. To help enhance your feeding station, we've created this handy resource featuring beautifully illustrated profiles of 40 familiar feeder birds of the Southwest, each annotated with notes on species' habitats and behaviors. Also included is an overview of feeder types and recommended foods for attracting each species. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is a terrific companion for educators, learners, naturalists, birders, and homeowners who wish to sharpen their identification skills and forge deeper connections with the Southwestern birds that readily seek bird feeders throughout the year. Made in the USA.
