From woodnymphs and mountain-gems to plovercrests and hillstars, this guide describes the hummingbirds of the Americas, offering a comprehensive overview of the birds' biology, evolution, behavior, breeding, and migration patterns. Few birds are more deserving of being captured in close-up color photos, and this book does them justice, with page-filling, larger-than-life portraits among the more than 150 illustrations. Along with a checklist of hummingbirds worldwide, a glossary, and a list of resources for further study, Tony Tilford also explains what kinds of plants and flowers will attract hungry hummingbirds to your garden, as well as how to create artificial feeding stations by making food that the birds will like.
