The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Florida
Stan Tekiela’s famous Birds of Florida Field Guide has been delighting bird-watchers for years. Now, the award-winning author has written the perfect bird identification guide for children!
The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Florida features 87 of the most common and important birds to know, with species organized by color for ease of use. Do you see a yellow bird and don’t know what it is? Go to the yellow section to find out. Each bird gets a beautiful full-color photograph and a full page of neat-to-know information―such as field marks, calls/songs, a range map, and Stan’s cool facts―that make identification a snap.
Fun bonus activities for the whole family, like building a birdhouse and preparing your own bird food, make this a must-have beginner’s guide to bird-watching in the Sunshine State!
The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Florida is an easy-to-use guide for anyone interested in seeing and identifying birds. As a child, Stan Tekiela spent hours of enjoyment watching birds come to a wooden feeder that his father built in their backyard. They were the only family in the neighborhood who fed birds, and they became known as the nature family.
Now, more people feed birds in their backyards than those who go hunting or fishing combined. Not only has it become very popular to feed and watch birds, but young and old alike are also identifying them and learning more about them.
