Everything you need to know

to find birds in New England,

and to bring birds into your own backyard!

Where can you find Atlantic Puffin, Razorbill, Common Eider, all three Scoter species, and lots of other New England specialties? Coming in spring 2019, Birding New England will provide directions to all of the major hotspots, with more than 500 color photos of all the birds regularly found in the region. Easy to use to plan birding excursions and to identify birds in the field, this new book will make your next trip along the coast, into the forests, or around the corner a great success!

It’s fun and easy to attract birds to your yard—all you need are the right foods, water, and shelter, and your yard will be aflutter with featured creatures in any season.

With our books, Backyard Birding: A Guide to Attracting and Identifying Birds and New England Bird Lover’s Garden, we help you make the right choices the first time, so you can begin to attract the colorful birds you love.

  1.     Recognize the birds you are most likely to see in your backyard, based on your region of the United States.

  2.     Get tips on recognizing male and female birds of the same species, as well as winter plumage and other changes that confuse new and veteran birders.

  3.     Choose native plants that attract the most birds, and foods that bring in the species you want to see.

“A helpful book to guide you from making costly mistakes when planning your bird-friendly yard. In it you will find all sorts of wonderful information on which feed and feeders to use and what birds are attracted to what... We enjoyed the chapter on building a bird garden with native plants as it showcases various flowers, trees, and shrubs to use to best attract a variety of birds.” --
