Latimer, J. & Nolting, K. (1999). Backyard birds. Boston: Houghton Mifflin.

Backyard Birds guides young bird watchers with tools and strategies to identify common birds in North America. The book uses the Peterson Identification System, detailed, realistic illustrations of birds accompanied with the best methods for identifying each type of bird. In addition to the illustrations of each bird, there is also a clear photograph for each of the twenty birds with the book. Each bird has an explanation of common characteristics and/or features; interesting facts; and the description of habitat, voice, and food.
This clear and easy-to-read guide will help young naturalists on their venture to identify birds within their own backyards. The interesting “Did You Know?” facts, detailed illustrations, and vivid color photographs will easily capture the interest of young readers. The information is clearly presented in an organized collection of facts about birds. Includes table of contents and index. Ages 7-12. ( )
