Backyard Bird Feeding: A Saskatchewan Guide

by Trevor Herriot and Myrna Pearman (2021)


Nature Saskatchewan is delighted to announce publication of a new full-colour guide to the art and science of attracting and feeding birds. Well-known writer and naturalist Trevor Herriot provides the Saskatchewan perspective in order to adapt the very successful Backyard Bird Feeding: An Alberta Guide, by Myrna Pearman (published by Ellis Bird Farm in 2015) for our province. The combined knowledge and talents of these two very accomplished writers and bird-lovers has produced an engaging and fascinating handbook that covers everything you need to consider, from habitat, migration, bird behaviour and the basics of offering food and water to dealing with a wide range of problems that may arise. Brief accounts of the 72 species most likely to be attracted to feeders in our province include information on identification, feeding preferences and behaviour through the seasons. The 112-page text is complemented by interesting informational sidebars and some 331 photographs generously contributed by 66 Prairie photographers (including many from Myrna). Whether new to the idea of feeding birds or a veteran with extensive experience, any reader is bound to encounter information of value, not to mention delightful images to relish!

Backyard Bird Feeding: A Saskatchewan Guide is now available from Nature Saskatchewan’s online store and from retailers throughout Saskatchewan for $19.95 + GST.
