Sharing your space with your feathered friends can be both fun and practical. Not only do they start your day off with a song and, provide a running show, they help rid your backyard of many of the bugs munching on your garden plants. Nature writer Edward R. Ricciuti, an avid bird watcher, has followed flying creatures all over the world and shares his vast ornithological knowledge with everyone who would like to enjoy the entertaining world of birds from the comfort of their own window perch. Backyards Are for the Birds is a wealth of information told with humor, wit, and a fond appreciation of birds and their human friends.
