If you add a food and water station for the birds in your garden, it won't be long before you'll want to start identifying the different kinds you see. You can use an on-line resource like The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, but having a few books on hand is very convenient. That way you can compare the birds to the photos or drawings in the book. We have 2 favorites: Peterson Field Guide to Birds of Eastern and Central North America and The Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America. These books live on our coffee table near the window from which we see our birdfeeder. We find ourselves flipping through them often to identify new birds we see or to read about the ones we have already identified.
