About the Author:

Scott Shalaway is the author of Building a Backyard Bird Habitat (0811726983), The Wild Side (1882955005), and Birds, Bats, and Butterflies (1882955013), as well as a syndicated nature column that appears in newspapers throughout the East. He is also the host of the radio programs ?The Wild Side? and ?Birds and Nature.?

From Booklist:

Shalaway, a naturalist with a degree in entomology, explains the natural history of butterflies and moths and introduces readers to some of North America's most common species. These include swallowtails, painted ladies, admirals, monarchs, sulphurs, mourning cloaks, fritillaries, and skippers. He describes the mysteries of metamorphosis and migration, and explains how to attract butterflies with feeders and shelters. There are detailed descriptions of various species with data on their habitat, range, and food sources. This is not a field guide, but rather a well-illustrated connoisseur's guide (Shalaway lists his personal favorites) to enticing butterflies onto one's home ground and enjoying their presence more fully by being more informed about their identities and habits.
