"I remember the first time I watched a Black-capped Chickadee fly down from a tree and perch on someone's hand," writes author and bird lover Hugh Wiberg. "Although this happened more than 20 years ago, it was a special moment that will stay with me forever."

Before long, Wiberg was enticing birds to his own hand, and he's been hand-feeding birds in his backyard and in sanctuaries ever since. Now he describes the thrills and rewards of hand-feeding and explains how you can enjoy this exciting activity, too. Soon Chickadees, Nuthatches, Titmice, and others will recognize you as their friend and eagerly visit your hand for a snack.

Featuring more than 80 color photos and simple instructions, Hand-Feeding Backyard Birds shares Wiberg's secrets for success. He lists the birds most likely to hand-feed, their favorite foods, and the best times, places, and weather conditions for hand-feeding. In addition, you'll learn how to take amazing close-up photos of birds of the hand.
