Reviews - What do customers think about Backyard Birds (Peterson Field Guides® for Young Naturalists)?
A good introduction for children to the field of bird watching. Sep 2, 2006
The Peterson guides are a well established in the birding world. I was looking for a good basic introductory book for my young daughter who, like me, enjoys bird watching. This book has a list of the most common birds that we're likely to see in our backyard. I like the way it's divided by feather coloration rather than by species or group of species. This makes it easier for a child to learn to identify the birds in a non-overwhelming way. I plan to buy the rest of the series for our family's field library.
Backyard Bird (FlashGuides) Jul 24, 2005
Excellent photographs of Midwest Birds that will allow you to identify the bird that you see....quickly.
Alot of fun! Jan 22, 2000
My girls and I love this book! What a pleasure to be able to look out our window and now be able to identify the types of birds that live among us. We even now can recognize a bird by sound.
This book includes wonderful pictures with easy to read descriptions of the birds and their habits.
What a great way to spend time with each other having fun exploring and learning.
A book that can be enjoyed at any age.
Fold-out laminated field guide with excellent drawings! May 14, 1999
This really useful field guide has great drawings of over 100 species found in neighborhoods in US and Canada. Has a simple system to instantly tell you the region and feeding preferences of birds, in other words, where you are most likely to find them. The drawings are beautiful, colorful and accurate, clearly showing the difference between male and female, and defining markings. I've enjoyed mine thoroughly!
