Hummingbird Gardens
Attracting Nature's Jewels to Your Backyard


136 pages, 11 x 8 1/2; full-color photographs, Paperback.
Nancy L. Newfield and Barbara Nielsen

Few Birds intrigue like the hummingbird, an iridescent wonder. Although many people try to attract the birds with the feeders now commercially available, the most successful find that a combination of feeders and flowers draws the birds best. By dividing the United States and Canada into six regions, authors Nancy Newfield and Barbara Nielsen provide gardening tips and strategies to attract hummingbirds for enthusiasts from every corner of the continent: California, the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest, the Western Mountains, the Southeast, and the East and the Midwest. Also includes an illustrated Garden Plan for each region; a Master Guide to Hummingbirds, with full-color photographs, and a Master Guide to Hummingbird Plants, noting in which areas of the country each can be grown.
