Featuring the spectacular full-color illustrations and range maps that made All the Birds of North America an instant category bestseller, these two compact regional guides are for all nature enthusiasts and everyone with a backyard feeder.
Last spring, HarperReference published All the Birds of North America, a comprehensive field guide that made identifying birds easier than ever before. With its unique classification system using icons and color keys based on feeding adaptations and behavior, its panoramic full-color paintings from America's finest bird artists, its emphasis on conservation, and the backing of the leading bird preservation organization, All the Birds has taken flight, going on to sell more than 130,000 copies in less than a year and becoming an instant favorite with birdlovers everywhere.
Using digitally remastered art from this enormously popular, definitive guide to North American birds, All the Backyard Birds: East and All the Backyard Birds: West are sure to enjoy the same success. These new additions to HarperReference's expanding bird library focus on the needs of the bird watcher. They tell you everything you need to know about birds typically found in backyards, in parks or along roadsides. In addition, information is included on attracting birds to your yard as well as a checklist to record your sightings. Compact and concise, these are the perfect guides to keep on the windowsill overlooking your backyard feeder or to take on a trip to the park or local nature center.
