Wow, this book was out of print so I bought it used from an Amazon seller and when it arrived, it looked newer than mine.The price was VERY reasonable because I know my husband paid a lot more for mine new. I bought it for a friend's gift since she had admired mine several times.
This book has full scale pages of hummingbird pictures and the text gives you all the details you need to become a hummingbird aficionado. It is a large book measuring 9.5" X 12" and makes a beautiful coffee table book that guest will actually pick up and look at. The pages are high gloss quality and the pictures are just breathtaking.
One caution. The dust jacket is what you see in the picture. Try to find one that states it still has the dust jacket because the actual cover of the book is just a blue material and not pretty at all. Even a torn dust jacket would be better than no dust jacket.

I love this book. There are photos of hummers napping, preening, hovering, backing away from flowers, perching on branches and beginning their flight, nests, nestlings, hummers brooding their eggs, and more. Very informative text as well. The authors must have spent years studying these beautiful little birds. I am in awe of their work displayed in this book and find myself getting absorbed in it. Most thorough and informative book on hummingbirds I have seen.

Both the photography and information are superlative, as is the quality of the printing. We feed, watch and photograph hummingbirds all summer, and rely on this wonderful book to get us through winter. As the book is out of print, I feel very fortunate to have found a perfect "like new" copy from a used book seller on Amazon. Get one before they are all gone! No other hummingbird book comes close.

Love reading and learning about these gorgeous things. We really enjoy the feeders and trying to identify each different bird.

I have several Humming bird books. This is my favorite. When I first received book, I thought it too big , but then realizing that the larger pictures are really worth while and on page on right describe the particular bird and all the info about that certain type hummingbird.
