Jewels of the Garden.
How the twittering of a songbird can lift the day! And how spotting a vibrant avian friend alight on the birdfeeder, or on the tree just outside your window, always brings a moment of pleasure. From the experts at the National Audubon Society, this calendar celebrates the birds that are so familiar—yet always such a joy to see. Each month is packed with beautiful sightings, from the large full-color photograph at the top of the page to the dozens more in the grid below. One month it’s a Chestnut-backed Chickadee perched on a pinecone. Another, an American Robin preparing for a graceful landing. Or a Black-chinned Hummingbird sipping nectar from a flower. Accompanying the gorgeous photographs are detailed descriptions of the featured species, behavior, habitat, songs, and more. Printed on responsibly sourced paper.
