Bird feeders across the US Midwest are abuzz with activity, as different assortments of birds visit throughout the year. In migration, White-crowned Sparrows and Indigo Buntings join residents like Tufted Titmice and American Goldfinches. In all seasons, busy feeding stations serve as living laboratories where observers can peer more closely into the fascinating lives of common species. 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 the Midwest, 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 Midwestern birds that readily seek bird feeders. Made in the USA.
