      About this book. The most recent total account of the birds of Greenland was published in the late sixties (Salomonsen ). Since that, major changes have been recorded in the status and occurrence of several species. A long-bodied, low-slung diver. Many people consider the loon a symbol of wilderness; its rich yodeling and moaning calls, heard by day or night, are characteristic sounds of early summer in the north woods. In winter, silent and more subtly marked, Common Loons inhabit coastal waters and large southern lakes. In such places they are solitary while feeding, but may gather in loose flocks at night.

        With 25 to 30 species in the Northeast, these small, active, colorful birds may seem daunting to identify, but each warbler species’ song is unique and learnable. Many birders use mnemonics—cute little phrases—to help them remember these songs. A familiar backyard bird, the House Wren was named long ago for its tendency to nest around human homes or in birdhouses. Very active and inquisitive, bouncing about with its short tail held up in the air, pausing to sing a rich bubbling song, it adds a lively spark to gardens and city parks despite its lack of bright colors. Various forms of this wren are found from central Canada to southern.

        “Life listing” birds can have an unfortunate side: it can reduce birds to mere tokens to be “ticked” in a competitive game. Obsessive birders race around just to notch the most sightings; at its most extreme, it seems to have very little to do with birds.. This guide – a companion to the popular Sibley Guide to Birds – offers a remedy. It’s a guide to what birds do, encouraging.   Cut the bird book pages in half and place them inside the folded front cover. Then just staple it closed! Free Cover. Free Pages.

The Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus)is one of the most common birds in my backyard, and one of the boldest.

They’re the small, black-and-white birds, and as their name suggests they have a black cap on their heads that resembles a mask. Their call of chick-a-dee-dee-dee is standard outdoor music in most parts of the east.

These little guys will happily eat sunflower seeds. This species and the Downy Woodpecker are remarkably similar in pattern, differing mainly in size and bill shape.

They often occur together, but the Hairy, a larger bird, requires larger trees; it is usually less common, especially in the east, and less likely to show up in suburbs and city parks.

In its feeding it does more pounding and excavating in trees than most smaller woodpeckers. Explore our list of Bird watching->United States (Northeastern & Mid-Atlantic) Books at Barnes & Noble®.
