Eastern/Central and Western North American versions each provide 120 of the most popular species in each region, filled with beautiful hand illustrations by Pedro Fernandes, charts and range maps, and other easy tools that make All About Backyard Birds more approachable than other birding books to beginner and novice birders. All About Backyard Birds includes our new FREE downloadable Bird QR book companion app, which you can use to tap-and-listen to calls and songs for the birds you see in the book, and tap-and-learn for additional content.
