I received this as a gift after moving to a home surrounded by woods, near a reservoir. As a total "bird novice" this book helped me to correctly identify ALL the birds that frequent our feeder. It also helped me with some basic decisions about what type of seeds we would offer, what kinds of feeders, water, etc. What I like about the book is the relatively few birds discussed as opposed to an encyclopedia of every bird in North America. Starting out, I would have had a harder time knowing where to even look in a more extensive book to identify the birds in my yard.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that receiving this book was the start of a big hobby for me an my family. We now have nesting boxes, a heated birdbath, and additional feeders...all frequented by the birds! My kids like to identify the birds as well. We had eastern bluebirds nesting in our yard last year and look forward to their return.

I have seen nearly all the birds in the book, with the notable exception of the Baltimore Oriole. I wonder if it is really a "most common" bird anymore...the people in the bird food store say they are getting more rare and are really tough to attract and view.

If you are new to birding, I think this book is great to get you started!

The guide espouses to "enable [the reader] to identify and properly name the top twenty-five birds using your backyard bird sanctuary". While I'm not clear on the distinction between "identify" and "properly name", it's irrelevant, as this guide won't help you do either.

There is some marginally useful information on attracting birds in here, but this at the national level with little focus on regional differences. Overall, Backyard Birds seems like a quick attempt by a publisher to make a little cash from the growing popularity of feeding birds. One only hopes they fail as miserably as these books do.

Of course I'm slightly partial because the cover photo and two photos inside are mine. But, that aside, the book is a swell gift for the casual backyard birder. For $9.95 you get your bucks worth. It's easy to find the birds, it provides solid information without having to flip back and forth trying to make sense of what you see. Well written and the photos are great!

We were very disappointed with this book.Only a couple of the types of birds in our backyard at the feeders, were even in this book. They were not unusual birds but regular Maryland visitors.
