    A wealth of informative text and spectacular photos. Long, long ago – experience taught me the smoothest way through life is to “never make recommendations to anybody about anything.” Sam and I have learned to qualify those don’t-miss-it things encompassing: great places to eat, visit, read, watch, etc. For example, we now say, “The food was great the night we were there,” or “You would love the movie if you enjoy such-and-such.”

    An excellent resource Including information from real-life hummingbird gardeners around the U.S., this book will be useful to virtually anyone in North America who’s trying to create backyard habitat for these fascinating birds. The main shortcoming of this book is in the depth of coverage of the plants, particularly photos. There were not enough showing an entire plant (though more than enough of the birds themselves), and the one feeder illustrated contained dyed sugar water (a no-no and contradictory to the text). Novice hummingbird gardeners should cross-reference the plant names with national and regional gardening guides for photos and cultural information such as size and temperature tolerance.
