Learn to attract and feed a variety of hummingbirds with this pocket-sized guide.
The glittering throat patch of the male Ruby-throated Hummingbird is a worthy adornment for this princely bird. And what else can captivate a bird watcher as much as a hummingbird's aerial acrobatics? You love these beloved birds, and you want to see them visiting your backyard or garden. Professional naturalist and award-winning author Stan Tekiela teaches you all that you need to know about hummingbirds--including Anna's, black-chinned, broad-tailed, rufous, and other hummingbird species.
The handy book is divided into three main sections. First, you'll learn all about hummingbirds: facts, range, habitat, songs, nests, and more. Up next, you'll be introduced to the feeding solution that keeps hummingbirds coming back. In the third section, Stan tells you which feeders hummingbirds prefer and why. You'll also be given information on placing feeders and cleaning feeders.
Find out how to make your yard into a habitat that hummingbirds will love. Then enjoy Stan's hummingbird photography, trivia, and quick tips. This is truly your guide to attracting and feeding hummingbirds
