Backyard Birds — New Book in Time for Bird Feeding Season
We are so excited about Backyard Birds and want to share a bit about it with all of our birding buddies.
Stan Tekiela’s Backyard Birds: Welcomed Guests at Our Gardens and Feeders highlights the simple joys of bird-watching. It really is one of life’s great pastimes.
Seeing a colorful friend flit about your backyard brings feelings of excitement, gladness, and contentment. Stan understands the thrill of bird-watching.

In Backyard Birds, he guides you through the wonderful lives of the most popular, most beloved species—like the American Goldfinch, the Northern Cardinal, and the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. His incomparable photography captures the birds in action and depicts behaviors that are sure to charm and perhaps even surprise you, while the book’s headings and small blocks of text make for easy yet informative browsing. Every important aspect of the birds’ lives, from first flight and feeding to migration and mating, is portrayed in this gorgeous book. Your coffee table won’t be complete without it.
