Birding is among the most popular outdoor activities―especially in the South, where hundreds of different bird species can be seen and observed. Now is the perfect time to join the fun and let our feathered friends astonish and inspire you with Stan Tekiela’s Birding for Beginners: South.
The book is written by the biggest name in bird and nature photography, award-winning naturalist Stan Tekiela, author of nearly 200 field guides, nature books, and children’s books.

The first section of the book presents “how-to” information. Learn the basics of bird feeders. Get to know your birdseed. Create a bird-friendly yard―and even make your own bird food with do-it-yourself recipes.
The book’s second section is an identification guide, featuring more than 50 Southern birds that are most likely to be seen at your backyard feeder or near your home. The species are organized by color, making it simple to identify what you see. If you spot a yellow bird, go to the yellow section to discover what it is. Each bird gets a full-page photograph with notations about key field marks or identification characteristics. The full-color photos are paired with information ranging from the bird’s nest and eggs to favorite foods, as well as Stan’s fascinating naturalist notes.
