Bird neighbors. An introductory acquaintance with one hundred and fifty birds commonly found in the gardens, meadows, and woods about our homes by Neltje Blanchan( )

102 editions published between 1897 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1897, “Bird Neighbors" was nature writer Neltje Blanchan's first major work, combining hard science and personal experience in a profusely-illustrated and accessible volume. Upon publication, naturist John Burroughs hailed it as "reliable", while The New York Times praised the book's colour pictures and the fact that it could be easily "understood by all readers". This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in bird watching or ornithology, and it would make for a fantastic addition to any collection. Contents include: “Bird Families", “Habitats of Birds", “Seasons of Birds", “Birds Grouped According to Size", “Descriptions of Birds", “Birds Conspicuously Black", “Birds Conspicuously Black and White", “Ducky and Gray and Slate-Colored Birds", “Blue and Blush Birds", “Brown, Olive or Grayish Brown", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing “Bird Neighbors" now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author

Describes more than 100 common United States birds, including their physical attributes, calls, and nesting and mating habits. Describes more than 100 common United States birds, including their physical attributes, calls, and nesting and mating habits. Originally published in 1907, Birds Every Child Should Know is a collection of storylike descriptions of more than one hundred birds commonly found in the United States. Neltje Blanchan's detailed descriptions of birds -- their physical attributes, calls, nesting and mating habits, and other behaviors -- are nothing less than enchanting, and some read almost like fairy tales. Take for instance the mockingbird's call: when the moonlight sheds a silvery radiance about every sleeping creature, the mockingbird sings to his mate such delicious music as only the European nightingale can rival. Perhaps the stillness of the hour, the beauty and fragrance of the place where the singer is hidden among the orange blossoms or magnolia, increase the magic of his almost pathetically sweet voice; but surely there is no lovelier sound in nature on this side of the sea-or the yellow warbler's nest: an exquisite little cradle of silvery plant fiber, usually shreds of milkweed stalk, grass, leaves, and caterpillar's silk, neatly lined with hair, feathers, and downy felt of fern fronds. Blanchan includes folk history (how Native Americans and southern slaves thwarted mosquitoes by hanging gourds to attract purple martins) as well as common threats to birds that foreshadow current dangers to avian life (the toll taken on songbirds by lighthouses and electric towers). Such informative details, along with the author's disarming enthusiasm for her subject, will charm adult bird-watchers as well as children. Cornelia Mutel's informative foreword places Blanchan's writing in the historical context of a turn-of-the-century environmental reawakening and burgeoning activism and research by women onbehalf of dwindling bird populations
