Erin’s first book will help you learn to identify common butterflies, and find out what to plant in your garden to attract them!
If you’ve ever wondered whose brightly colored wings are flitting through your yard, or how to appeal to more of their kind, the Bird Watcher’s Digest Butterflies Backyard Guide has all the answers for you.
This fully illustrated guide profiles 55 common North American butterflies. Each butterfly in the book is presented on a two-page spread with facts about its life cycle, habits, and diet, as well as suggestions for what gardeners can plant to attract it. The guide is organized according to butterfly family, so you can flip open the guide and quickly zero in on the facts about the specific butterfly you’re identifying.
In addition to gorgeous photographs, the guide also includes tips on how to find butterflies, raise caterpillars, and make landscaping choices to improve your backyard habitat for butterflies, bees and other pollinators, and all the other wildlife that depends on them.
