A Little Book of Hummingbirds

A Little Book of Hummingbirds

by Weaver, Tara Austen

This intimate and lavishly illustrated journey into the world of the hummingbird is a treasure and a gift for birdwatchers, gardeners, and anyone who loves these amazing little creatures. Features 45+ vintage-inspired, full-color illustrations.

Hummingbirds are beautiful and mesmerizing. Did you know they can flick their tongue twelve times a second? Or that they “tile” their nests with pieces of lichen and moss (the nests themselves are spun from spiderwebs and thistledown)? Or that some species sing and dance as they woo their mates? Perhaps it’s no surprise that hummingbirds elicit such enthusiasm from those who love them.  

This small-format hardcover book includes:

  • 45 lifelike ink-and-watercolor drawings showcasing all the species commonly found in the US and Canada, as well as the most frequent visitors—often depicted with their favorite flowers
  • Fascinating facts on cultural history, folklore, migration patterns, habitat, lifecycle, biology, and anatomy
  • Information on creating your own hummingbird haven using feeders, flowers, water, and shelter
  • Birdwatching tips and best places to visit to see hummingbirds

This book is part of the collectible mini gift book series Little Book of Natural Wonders.
