Peterson Field Guides
Covering 300 of the most common birds in all of the United States and Canada, The Young Birder s Guide to Birds of North America is loaded with color photographs, drawings showing typical behaviors, range maps, an easy-to-use checklist, fun facts, and authoritative information about each bird, its vocalizations, and its habitat.
While other field guides might overwhelm kids who are new to birding, The Young Birder s Guide to Birds of North America was created with help from kids. Bill Thompson s own son and daughter and their elementary school classes helped select the content. Kid tested, kid approved!
BILL THOMPSON III is the editor of Bird Watcher s Digest and the author of Identifying and Feeding Birds, Hummingbirds and Butterflies, and Identify Yourself. Bill is a highly sought-after speaker and trip leader on the birding festival circuit. He lives with his wife and their two children on eighty birdy acres in Ohio.”
