This accessible, comprehensive volume will answer any and all questions about the visiting habits of hummingbirds and butterflies. Which flowers attract butterflies? Why do hummingbirds fly toward the color red? What's the role of water in attracting these revelatory creatures across the garden's boundary? The book opens with a chapter called "The Basics," which explains where and when hummingbirds and butterflies tend to emerge and their migration patterns, climate preferences, and life cycles. Later chapters include "Tempting Butterflies with Treats" and "Butterfly and Hummingbird Garden Designs." It concludes with a series of clear drawings of various species and their identifying characteristics, favored plants, range, and habitat. Writer Sally Roth is a natural guide to this flying world, and although her text contains reams of information, it never seems complicated or overwhelming. Well organized with illuminating sidebars and remarkable close-up photographs--a mother hummer feeding her young in their tiny nest--Attracting Butterflies and Hummingbirds to Your Backyard will help you turn your garden into a destination for these miraculous guests. --Emily WhiteAbout the Author:
A lifelong naturalist and gardener, Sally Roth is the author of the highly successful The Backyard Birdfeeder's Bible and Attracting Birds to Your Backyard. Her other previous books include Natural Landscaping and Taylor's Guide to Ornamental Grasses, and her articles have appeared in many gardening magazines. She frequently lectures and leads workshops on bird watching, natural history, gardening, and native plants. Sally also writes a weekly newspaper column about nature that appears in several Indiana newspapers.
Sally was born and raised in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. After living for a brief time on the Oregon coast, she settled in New Harmony, Indiana, in 1992. Sally is entirely self-educated in gardening and natural history.

She is involved in research projects about ants, beavers, cat predation of songbirds, and backyard diversity.
