And for the millions of Americans suddenly working or sheltered at home, learning the names, colors, and characteristics of nature’s feathered favorites is a brand-new passion. Stan Tekiela’s Birding for Beginners is the only series for new birders that provides expert guidance by region, and we are celebrating this new series with our Birding for Beginners Giveaway. So read on, and don’t forget to enter for your chance to win one of Stan Tekiela’s Birding for Beginners books of your choice and a pack of four wildlife finger puppets.

About the Series: Stan Tekiela’s Birding for Beginners is the only series for new birders that provides expert guidance by region.
