Feeder Birds of Southern California: A Folding Pocket Guide to Common Backyard Birds (All about Birds Pocket Guide) (Paperback)
Regularly observing bird feeders in Sothern California is a great way to get acquainted with common birds and learn more about their habits and fascinating life histories. It's so easy to get lost in the comings and goings of such regular visitors as California Scrub-Jays, American Goldfinches, Spotted Towhees, and various hummingbirds. Attracting a wide variety of birds 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, which features beautifully illustrated profiles of 40 familiar feeder birds of Southern California, 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 Southern California birds that readily seek bird feeders.
