The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Colorado: A Must-have Beginner’s Guide to Bird-watching in the Centennial State!
The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Colorado is a fun, 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.
Known for his birding field guides, the award-winning author has written the perfect bird identification guide for children. The Kids’ Guide to Birds of Colorado features 87 of the most common and important birds to know, with species organized by color for ease of use.
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 the perfect introduction to bird identification for a new generation in the Centennial State!
