    2. I picked up this book for its glossy pictures of so many amazing birds. The male great horned owls establish territories.The courting and mating of various couples are described in detail. I wanted to learn more about a bird that laid its eggs in the open in my yard last summer and here it is---- the cutest things you've ever seen. Kildeer lay and incubate their eggs right in the open. The eggs have cryptic coloration.The Black-capped chikadee is noted. The female starts laying one egg per day u [...]

    3. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for a review, and here is said review!I love birds, I always haveI envy their flight and beautiful plumage ( dyed my hair bright blue out of desire for plumage, even if most females are drab), their romantic courtships have fascinated me, and their songs soothe me. This book takes a look at a side of many bird's lives that sadly gets skimmed over in more general books on birds, which is tragic. In my opinion birds have probably the most diverse and [...]

    4. This is a magical look into the secret lives of birds. We only think we know them. We hear their song and see them at the feeder. Their courtships and family lives are so diverse and choreographed it is hard to image they are all descended from the same line. A wonderful family book to share with children. A way to draw the nature indoors and draw us outdoors to experience more.

    5. Recently my 13y.o. daughter starts to love birdwatching and this book offers a fascinating introduction to not only the nest, but also the family lives of various kinds of birds! Nice :)

    6. Beautiful pictures and interesting read - at first - but then it gets a bit repetitive. Great reference book, though.

    7. The text is pretty dry, and can get repetitive if the reader, hypothetically speaking, tries to read the whole thing in a couple of days because it's about to be due back at the library. The photos, though—WOW! It's absolutely worth a look for those alone, assuming one is interested in birds and how they raise their young.

    8. I loved this read, with the brilliantly coloured, action-filled photos showing nesting, courtship, egg-sitting, chick feeding and fledgling rearing among many American birds. Bird lovers anywhere will benefit from learning that eggs laid inside a tree are normally white, unlike those in open nests, while many terms are well explained. For example, precocial chicks follow their mother from the nest shortly after hatching, like ducklings, while altricial chicks are fed in the nest for weeks until [...]

    9. Erickson and Read have brought out the binoculars (as evidenced by the engaging cover) and done some bird research for you. While not comprehensive, this book focuses on a selection of over 2 dozen American bird species that you’re likely to see around your neighborhood. This heavily illustrated volume is fun to browse but also very concisely informative. Captions accompanying each color image make it easy to identify the birds, their nests & eggs, and young offspring.The introductory chap [...]

    10. An interestingly written book which explores the habits of familiar birds. These are, for the most part, birds that live around me, and many that I see frequently. I loved reading about the various courting habits, their different parenting styles, and how the young grow and finally go off on their own. As I was reading this book, I was observing a pair of house or purple finches (I can't tell the difference) as they are raising a family in the grapevine/fake forsythia wreath beside my front doo [...]

    11. I was so excited to receive a copy of this book, I have been a keen birdwatcher from a very young age and I am always keen to know more. The book is fascinating, it has delightful facts, excellent images and I really enjoyed the whole thing. It was a joy to read and cannot thank the publishers enough for letting me have a review copy in exchange for my honest opinion. I have already recommended the book to others.

    12. This book is a treasure! The photographs are gorgeous and amazing (how did they get some of those shots?!), and I learned a lot about the birds in our yard (plus birds I might never see). So fascinating! It really gave me a new appreciation for all the work birds do in mating, nesting, fighting off predators, raising and feeding their young, and just surviving. If you have even a remote interest in birds, I highly recommend this book.

    13. I have been a bird enthusiast for many years, but the photos and captions alone are worth checking out this resource. I learned so many fascinating tidbits about the various species which frequent my area. For example, unlike other birds, the Downy woodpecker can nest deep in the cavity of a tree despite the buildup of carbon dioxide.

    14. Great book, with wonderful pictures and interesting information about birds currently living in the U.S.Bel libro con delle fantastiche fotografie dei piú comuni volatili degli Stati UnitiANKS TO NETGALLEY AND STOREY PUBLISHING FOR THE PREVIEW!

    15. I have studied birds all my life and I learned so many things from this book! Highly recommend for bird lovers!
