First in a series of beginner to novice birding books based on the #1 birding website, AllAboutBirds.org, from the esteemed Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
All About Backyard Birds builds on the huge success of the Cornell Lab’s renowned website to translate and deliver best-in-class content and proven user-friendly formats into print. East and West North American versions each provide 120 of the most popular species in each region, filled with beautiful hand illustrations by Pedro Fernandes, charts and range maps, and other easy tools that make All About Backyard Birds more approachable than other birding books to beginner and novice birders. All About Backyard Birds is also the first series to includes our new FREE downloadable Bird QR book companion app, which you can use to tap-and-listen to calls and songs for the birds you see in the book, and tap-and-learn for additional content.
All About Backyard Birds also includes a free download and tutorial of MERLIN®, an interactive GPS-based bird identification multimedia App, available on iTunes and Android stores (and already used by more than 1,000,000 bird watchers).
